The Spring Forest Fire Season Began Wednesday And Lasts Until April 30th And Is In Effect In Every Kentucky County

This law prohibits any person to burn between the daylight hours of 6:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.

The Kentucky Division of Forestry urges residents across the state to exercise caution when burning debris during this season. The KDF has responded to 78 wild land fires since January and nearly 40 percent have been attributed to debris burning.

After the drought last fall, and extreme wildfire conditions, it is important to remain vigilant about wildfires. In the spring, people do a lot of yard work that often includes burning leaves and yard debris. The KDF encourages residents considering debris burning to exercise caution and consider all factors in order to help maximize the safety to people, property and to the forest.
