This law prohibits outdoor open burning statewide in unincorporated areas during the months of March, April, and May between the hours of 6 AM and 6 PM.

This ban includes the burning of yard waste, trash, and debris, even in a proper burn barrel.

During spring, wildfire danger is high before plants have
turned green.

Warm, windy weather also contributes to elevated fire risk. Always be sure to use a proper burn barrel when burning outdoors during legal hours.
