Grilling out? Burn ban guidelines

Posted on: 3:23 pm, September 3, 2012, by


It’s Labor Day and every county in the state is still under a burn ban. 

So can you fire up that grill or not? 

What can you do under a burn ban? 

Make sure you follow the rules here.


Outdoor campfires or bonfires are prohibited.

LPG and natural gas grills and charcoal-fired cooking outside in a grilling receptacle are permitted provided that the activity is conducted over a non-flammable surface and at least five feet from flammable vegetation.

Coleman-type pressurized stoves are exempt.

However, any fire resulting from grilling or the use of one of these cookers or stoves is still an illegal fire.
