News from the Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation

Spring burning season is here. Burning is a great way to clear dead vegetation and clean up. Before you light up this spring, take the necessary precautions to ensure your burn does not become the next wildfire. Burn early in the day and check weather for afternoon or next day wind conditions. Be sure to have adequate equipment, assistance and water supply with you and always make sure the area is cold to the touch before leaving. Checking the following day is also important as stumps or roots may be holding heat that could re-ignite. If a fire does get out of control call 911 immediately.
