According to a press release from the Department of Natural Resources, the department has suspended all burn permits for the Kenai Peninsula. The suspension includes the burning of debris and brush piles and burn barrels.

The suspension does not include campfires or warming fires less than three feet in diameter.

The department encourages people to use safe practices when having a campfire or warming fire and to have water and other tools available to control any fire escapement.
