Open Spring Debris Burning Season – March 1

Spring Debris Burning PSA-24

Spring debris burning season will open Friday, March 1. Burning is a great way to clear dead vegetation
and clean up. Before you light your piles or grass this spring, take the necessary precautions to ensure
your burn does not become the next wildfire. Careless debris burning is one of the main causes of
wildfire on the Flathead Indian Reservation.
It is open burning season from March 1-April 30, 2024 on the Flathead Indian Reservation. To burn
from May 1 to June 30 you will need a burn permit. You can apply for a burn permit starting April 30,
2024, at the Division of Fire website,
Burn early in the day and check weather for afternoon or next day wind conditions. Have proper
personnel, equipment, & water supply with you and always make sure the area is cold to the touch
before leaving. Checking the following day is also important as stumps or roots may be holding heat that
could re-ignite.
If a fire does get out of control call 911 immediately.
Remember you are responsible for all suppression, property costs if your fire escapes your control.
If you have any questions about debris burning call the Division of Fire at 676-2550.
