Ward County burn ban in effect

Grass fire

The Ward County Commission recently issued a countywide burn ban due to the dry conditions and increased number of fire calls for wildland fires.

What does the burn ban mean for Minot residents?

It means the county will follow the fire index guide provided by the state of North Dakota, which says that certain outdoor burning activities are prohibited when conditions are in the “high,” “very high,” “extreme,” or “red flag” categories.

The fire index guide can change daily, so anyone planning outdoor burning should check the current condition before proceeding. If you’re scheduling any outdoor burning, you should also let the local fire departments know ahead of time.

You can find the daily fire index guide here.
