Open Burn Information


The Fire District would like to remind residents of the importance of preparing your property for fire season. Defensible space of 30 feet or more is crucial during wildfire season.  Please use caution when traveling or recreating in the outdoors this summer. When conditions change with the increase of precipitation and cooler weather we will enact open burning in the fall.

Some helpful tips for preparing your home can be found at If you any question regarding burning please contact the Elko County Fire Protection District at (775)738- 9960 or Central Dispatch at (775)777-7300.
