Bannock County has joined Pocatello in issuing a burn ban for the unincorporated areas of the county due to the current fire danger and fuel moisture levels.

Just as with the city ban, this measure does not include BBQ grills which use propane or charcoal briquettes.

The City of Pocatello implemented a ban on open burning of solid fuels in the Wildland Urban Interface areas earlier Tuesday.

The ban is effective Tuesday, July 30, 2013 and will remain in effect until it is repealed or October 1, 2013.  The Wildland Urban Interface areas are shown in yellow on the attached map. 

The use of gas fire pits and charcoal or gas grills when used in appliances designed for food preparation are exempted from this ban.

Citizens wishing to conduct open burning in areas other than the Wildland Urban Interface areas must obtain the required permit from the Pocatello Fire Department
