[ARCHIVED] Department of Environmental Quality Burn Ban Lifted in Pocatello


The Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has lifted the advisory prohibiting all open burning in our area. According to DEQ, the air quality has improved thus allowing their burn ban to be lifted. As a reminder, the City of Pocatello still has a burn ban on open burning of solid fuels within the wildland urban interface areas due to the current fire danger and fuel moisture levels, and in accordance with Resolution 2014-13. This ban went into effect on July 1, 2015 and remains in full force and effect until at such time it is repealed or October 1, 2015, whichever occurs first. In addition, the Pocatello Municipal Code prohibits the burning of substances of any kind within the city other than recreational fires, as defined by Section 302 of the 2012 International Fire Code, except by special permit issued by the Pocatello Fire Department in accordance with state regulations. 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. We encourage all citizens to be mindful when burning. If you have any questions please contact the Pocatello Fire Department at 234-6201.
