The fire danger level has been moved to “Moderate”  in Missoula county  by Fire officials with the Missoula County Fire Protection Association.  Fire Prevention Coordinator, Cindy Super says  this mean the fuels are starting to dry out.

Open burning will be allowed as long as a permit is acquired. Super says people outside of Missoula need  to check with their  county to see if permit burning is still allowed.

Burning season is regulated by both fire danger and air quality.  Burning may be shut down if air quality diminishes, or if the fire danger dictates, so it is important to check the burn hotline daily, not only when getting a permit.  The hotline numbers for the Seeley Lake, Clearwater or Swan Drainages north of Clearwater Junction: (406) 677-2899 and for the rest of Missoula County: (406) 258-4900.

Residents of Missoula County who wish to burn can obtain a permit from the US Forest Service, the Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation (DNRC) or their local fire department.  The permits are free.

In Montana, weather conditions can change dramatically in a short period of time.  The MCFPA would like to thank the residents of Missoula County for being cautious while outdoors and appreciate your cooperation.  For more information on fire and burning, go to the web, at:
