Ketchum Fire Department Suspends Open Burning

As high temperatures and low humidity add to the potential threat of wildfire danger, the Ketchum Fire Department has implemented a restriction on open burning on all public and private lands, roads and trails situated within the boundaries of the City of Ketchum.

Attended, backyard fires in an established fire ring, approved metal container or outdoor fireplace are permitted at this time. Fire restrictions may increase as the hot weather continues.

Fire restrictions are intended to decrease the chance of any preventable fires in the designated areas. With the fire season underway, these restrictions are intended to keep citizens and visitors safe as well as prevent dangerous and damaging wildfires.

These restrictions will remain in place until further notice. For additional information, please contact the City of Ketchum Fire Department at (208) 726-7805.
