SAFETY TIPS
Spring Burning Season by Permit in Missoula County is open.  $5 Burn Permits; activate each day you burn -- IF conditions allow. Use all safety precautions. More info... 
Info on MCFPA Match Safety  Spring Program

One less spark = one less wildfire.   Common factors in the local debris fires that got away last year in Missoula County:

Burning PILE area is NOT LIINED and FIRE CREPT into dry grass.

Burning on a HIGH WIND day and SPARKS SPREAD to dry grass.

  

 

 

"Most people who lose burns have left the pile only for a short time and return to a fire running through dry grass. Always have a charged hose or bucket of water, leather gloves, and hand tools available on-site when you burn anything."
