Hebgen Basin Fire District Lifts Burn Ban

The Hebgen Basin Fire District will allow open burning on private land beginning today, (October 15th at 8 AM).

“With the cooler nights added to the moisture we’ve had this month,” said Scott Waldron, Hebgen Basin Fire Chief, “we think it is appropriate that we lift the ban in our district.”

Any residents interested in burning will need to purchase a burn permit either through the Gallatin County Burn Permit website or at the Hebgen Basin Fire Station in West Yellowstone.

Hebgen Basin is the only fire district in Gallatin County that will re-open burning. “Most of Gallatin County has not received enough moisture yet,” says Kerry O’Connell, Gallatin County Fire Warden. “Typically, weather conditions change during the last two weeks of October which will make more fire districts around the County consider re-opening burning in their jurisdictions.”

According to O’Connell, the best way for residents to stay updated is to check on the burn permit website at the link above.
