Lifting Partial Fire Restrictions Imposed 7-19-2022

Upon the recommendation of the Sheridan County Fire Warden and the Fire Chiefs of the Rural Fire Protection Districts, the Sheridan County Commissioners have rescinded Resolution 22-07-025 which lifts the Partial Fire Restrictions imposed on July 22, 2022.  Effective immediately open burning will be allowed in Sheridan County.

The public is urged to be very cautious with any open burning in the County.  Weather conditions can quickly change this time of year, grass and other light fuels can dry if the weather warms up or the winds blows, making for high fire danger.  

Prior to any planned burning, please: Notify the Dispatch Center at 307-672-2413 so the fire department doesn’t show up uninvited; Check the weather forecast for warnings and if increased winds or dry conditions are predicted, avoid burning prior and during that time; Have fire tools, water, and a phone readily available; Do Not delay calling for help if your burn gets out of hand. early response can minimize control efforts and potential damage; and please do not leave your fires unattended.
