Outdoor burning may resume subject to normal area limitations and permitting requirements. “Recent fall rainfall has reduced the fire hazard locally,” says David Lynam, the County’s Fire Marshal, “A good deal of moisture has reduced the fire hazard to once again allow outdoor burning."

What does MODERATE danger mean?

MODERATE: When the fire danger is "moderate" it means that fires can start from most accidental causes, but the number of fire starts is usually pretty low.  If a fire does start in open, dry grassland, it will burn and spread quickly on windy days.  Most wood fires will spread slowly to moderately.  Average fire intensity will be moderate except in heavy concentrations of fuel, which may burn hot.  Fires are still not likely to become serious and are often easy to control.
