Fire Restrictions and Burn Ban

Extreme Fire Danger - Total Burn Ban in Effect

Benton County is in extreme fire danger and there is a total burn ban in place.  We ask that all community members refrain from doing anything that could possibly create a spark. 

Prohibitions include:
  • Building, maintaining, attending, or using a campfire, fire, or stove fire. 
  • Welding or operating a torch with an open flame.
  • Operating generators in areas of vegetation. 
  • Using a vehicle off Forest Service roads except when parking in an area devoid of vegetation for 10 ft.
  • Smoking outdoors in close proximity to flammable materials or vegetation.
