The state Division of Forestry has suspended burn permits for the Kenai Peninsula due to high fire danger and predictions of strong winds.
The division’s Kenai-Kodiak Area Office issued the burn-suspension notice Sunday morning.
The suspension includes open debris burning, burn barrels and lawns. Campfires are allowed, but must be kept smaller than 3 feet by 3 feet.
The division advises anyone who builds a campfire to remember to keep plenty of water at hand to douse any embers that may escape the fire. And, make sure the fire is completely extinguished before leaving the area.
For more information on the burn suspension, call 262-4269.
