Outside Fires & Open Burning Is Prohibited!

Fire Chief John Murtagh

To: Residents of the Village of Angel Fire and Surrounding Communities
Re: Outside Fires and Open Burning is Prohibited!

The prohibition is due to the lack of precipitation, high winds, and the continued drying out of fuels throughout the Village of Angel Fire. (Although low temperatures and reasonable humidity minimize the risk of fire danger, the remaining factors have greatly influenced this ban.)

Included in the burn ban are:

Outdoor smoking, bonfires, burning of explosives, campfires: charcoal broilers, barbecue grills, and coal-burning stoves used outside of a private dwelling are classified as campfires and are prohibited, ceremonial fires, outdoor cooking fires, outdoor heating fires, ignition of rocket motors, open burning, open flames, timber and forest management, disease control, outdoor welding and hot torch burning, above ground detonation, agricultural burning, controlled burns, research and development, slash piles, and weed burning.

Exceptions in the burn bane are:

Cooking and heating devises that use kerosene, white gas or propane as fuel if used with adequate fire protection and defensible space; commercial grade smokers with adequate fire protection and defensible space; commercially constructed personal smokers with adequate fire protection and defensible space; smoking that is restricted to designated areas within structures or inside vehicles equipped with ashtrays.
