Burning allowed again, with permit
The burn suspension on the Kenai Peninsula has been lifted as of noon today.
The Division of Forestry prohibited burning earlier this week due to dry conditions and hot temperatures. But it said cooler temperatures and forecasted rain have since decreased the wildland fire hazard locally.
That means those with small-scale burn permits can use burn barrels and burn small brush piles. Large-scale permits are required for brush piles more than four-feet tall and 10-feet across.
Burn permits are not required for grills or small campfires.
