Please remember that debris burning is not allowed within city limits of Kalispell, Whitefish, or Columbia Falls.
Burning permits are not required for campfires. Under state law, a campfire is defined as a fire set for cooking, warming or ceremonial purposes; not more than 3 feet in diameter or height and cleared of overhanging branches. All combustible material should be cleared at least 1-1/2 times the diameter of the fire.
Never leave your campfire unattended and keep your shovel and bucket handy. Most importantly, do not abandon your campfire until you are sure your fire is DEAD OUT. Prevent forest fires, build safe campfires, and stay with them until they are DEAD OUT. Only YOU can prevent wildfires.
