The Anchorage Fire Department suspended a municipal burn ban Wednesday, citing rain and cooler temperatures.
“Outdoor recreational fires are allowed. This includes barbecue grills, portable outdoor fireplaces, recreational, ceremonial and open cooking fires,” the fire department said in a statement Wednesday.
The fire department also reminded residents that burning trash and yard debris is “always prohibited within the Municipality of Anchorage at any time” and that burn permits are no longer issued by the municipality.
Included with the statement was a “Open Fire Decision Tree” that provides guidance and regulations what type of fires are and are not allowed in the municipality.
