Fall Fire Season

Fall is a great time of year, and one of my favorite things about fall is sitting around a bonfire on a chilly night roasting marshmallows and sharing stories. But just remember to be extra careful with your bonfire. An unattended bonfire or one that is not completely put out can cause major damage to Kentucky’s forests and wildlands.

Fall fire season is coming up in the state of Kentucky. During this time there are extra laws to help protect our forests and wildlands. While we need to make sure to protect our forests and wild lands year round, there is an extra threat in the two fire hazard seasons. The fall season starts October 1st and runs through December 15th.

During the season, there are a few laws you might want to be aware of. During this time it is illegal to burn from 6am to 6pm in or within 150 feet of any woodland or brushland. It is also illegal to leave a fire unattended until it is completely out.

These are just the basic laws that cover the entire state and remember that there could be other laws in your city or county. Before starting any fire, make sure to check with local offices to make sure you are not breaking any laws.
