06/18/2009: "No More Burning!"
San Juan County is now at a HIGH level on burning. No burning is no longer allowed except for recreational fires: Permits are not required for recreational fires up to two feet in diameter, in an approved burn ring.
The ring should be rock or masonry lined and the perimeter cleared to mineral earth in a two-foot wide band around the perimeter. Permits are not required for fires in approved pits in county and national parks. Recreational fires may be prohibited at certain times of year depending on weather and current fire danger.
