As of noon Aug. 29, the burn ban for campfires and charcoal barbecues is lifted in San Juan County. Recent humidity levels, rising fuel moistures, and precipitation in the county have warranted a lift on the burn ban enacted last week.
The Fire Marshal would like to remind all visitors and residents of San Juan County that this ban only applies to campfires and barbecues. Residential burning, burning of yard waste with a permit, and commercial burning, with a permit, will resume sometime in October.
