FIRE DANGER: MODERATE
As of 10/20/20, the summer burn ban has been fully lifted. You can now obtain a burn permit for burn barrels, yard waste/orchard clippings, hand-piled slash, and machine piled slash online at burn permits.idaho.gov.
Kootenai County Fire & Rescue will enforce all burning regulations year-round for areas within our Fire Protection District. A burn permit is required anytime you burn (with exception to recreational fires). It is the permit holder's responsibility to ensure that they are burning safely and within all regulations set by KCFR, IDL, and DEQ.
