outdoor burning restriction

Montana DNRC

It's July, it's getting hot and the forecast is calling for very warm temperatures by week's end.

It's with this in mind that the Missoula County Fire Protection Association has restricted open burning as of today.

Burning permits for Missoula County cannot be activated until this restriction is lifted.

MCFPA chairman, Matt Hall, says the hot, dry weather of the past week - combined with the forecast for more of the same for at least another week - will continue to dry out fuels.
