All outdoor burning, including recreational fires, are prohibited within the city limits beginning immediately. The need for the ban is based on weather conditions and community fire safety needs.

Recreational fires, campfires and fires in outdoor fireplaces or chimney-type devices are not allowed during this recreational burning ban. Cooking outdoors in an approved propane or charcoal barbecue is allowed.
