Routt County group asks residents to burn properly

The Routt County Wildland Fire Multi-Agency Coordinating Advisory and Policy Group in a news release asks residents to respect property rights and air quality, as well as use proper burning procedures.

Now that spring is here, agricultural burning is becoming more prevalent, especially at lower elevations. Agricultural burning plays a vital role in the agricultural and ranching community by removing agricultural refuse and replacing nutrients in the soil.

Before striking a match, notify Routt County Communications at 970-879-1110. Be prepared to provide the following information: location, size of area to be burned, start/finish time, material to be burned and property ownership. There is no fee for this notification.

For all other opening burning or recreational fires, contact area fire departments:

■ North Routt Fire Protection District: 970-879-6064

■ Oak Creek Fire Protection District: 970-736-8104

■ West Routt Fire Protection District: 970-276-3796

■ Yampa Fire Protection District: 970-638-4227

■ Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue: 970-871-8216 or 970-879-7170

Before burning, be aware of forecast weather conditions and keep in mind that conditions may change with wind velocities typically increasing in the afternoon. Spring and early summer can be windy in Routt County and can cause fires to burn out of control. Please inform authorities and neighbors about a burn, and burn responsibly by staying with your fire until it is extinguished.
