Debris burning is CLOSED until October 1

From CSKT Division of Fire 

RONAN — The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes Division of Fire officials have determined to keep fire danger signs within the Flathead Indian Reservation pointed to HIGH. 

Recent days have seen lower temperatures and higher relative humidity, but sunny and breezy conditions persist. Large fuels remain dry, so fire danger indices continue run in the HIGH range.  The threat of wildfire spreading on sunny, windy days is still very possible.

The CS&KT D.O.F. agency would like to extend a large “Thank You” to the residents of the Flathead Indian Reservation for lessening the number of human-caused fires this fire season. Open Debris burning will resume on October 1, 2018.  The public will not need a burn permit October 1-November 30th.  Campfires are allowed and hunters and campers are urged to make sure their warming fires are cold to the touch and dead-out before ever being left unattended.
