Tuesday's open burning ban lifted

Posted: Thursday, July 09, 2009

JUNEAU - Capital City Fire and Rescue on Wednesday canceled the open burning ban that was in effect Tuesday throughout the borough.

The fire department enacted the ban due to fire risk from extreme heat and low relative humidity, which had prompted the Alaska Region Fire Weather Center to put out a red flag warning for the Juneau area. That warning was also withdrawn.

The forecast for the next five days calls for daily high temperatures in the mid-70s with a possible shower late Thursday night.

For more information, call the city's main office at 586-5322, or contact Fire Marshal Dan Jager at dan_jager@ci.juneau.ak.us.
