The suspension on burn permits in the Kenai Peninsula was lifted on Friday, the Department of Natural Resources Division of Forestry announced.
Burn permits were suspended on May 24 because of weather conditions. The potential for significant fire risk will decrease with the recent and forecasted rain and cooler temperatures the Kenai Peninsula is experiencing, the release said.
The Kenai-Kodiak offices continue to remind the public to ignite debris piles, burn barrels and campfires away from other materials that could cause an out-of-control fire.
Burn permits are available online at forestry.alaska.gov/burn, as well as at fire departments and various businesses in town.
