Colorado Open Burning Forecast

Due to continuing concerns with the COVID-19 pandemic and its associated threat to people with heart and/or lung disease, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment recommends reducing open burning at this time, if possible, to lower the potential for additional respiratory effects from smoke. If open burning is conducted, please be considerate of nearby residents, especially those who may be suffering from cardiac or respiratory ailments.

Those who have permits for Open Burning, that is burning of waste materials or vegetation outside, can burn today (9/28/2021) between the hours of 11 AM and 4 PM. Remember, you must observe all fire restrictions or fire bans that may apply to your operation. For more information on local restrictions and fire safety, please contact your local sheriff's office or fire department.

The next open burn forecast will be issued tomorrow at 9 AM.

Always observe fire safety guidelines and check the National Weather service Fire Weather pages for local fire weather forecasts:
