Capital City Fire Rescue reminds everyone to use extreme caution with any and all open burning. With the sustained higher than normal temperatures, the backyards and wild lands in Juneau have become very dry and there is an increased potential for wild land fire danger. At this time there is not a ban on open burning. A permit is still required for any open burning, including burn barrels. Some helpful suggestions:
• If the wind is more than 10 mph, do not burn or, if you are, extinguish your fires.
• Have a charged hose near the fire to extinguish any spot fires.
