BREAKING NEWS: Stage 2 Fire Restrictions

The Carbon County Commissioners amended the Stage Two Fire Restrictions this morning for Carbon County for NO BURNING including NO Agricultural Burning. The enclosed Amended Resolution will NOT allow or permit any Special Exemptions for Agricultural Burning under Stage Two Fire Restrictions. The burning of stubble fields and irrigation ditch banks will NOT be allowed or permitted as long as Carbon County is under Stage Two Fire Restrictions. However, there are agricultural exemptions for agricultural operations such as harvesting crops and off road activities such as moving livestock and hauling water for livestock. I have also enclosed a copy of the Exemption Form which must be signed by the Fire Chief or Designee for any off road activities such as heavy equipment construction projects. Thanks again Firefighters and Stay Safe this Fire Season !!
