County-wide burn ban now in effect

Wednesday, August 3, 2011

Due to the high fire danger in Elmore County, and the fact that all the fire districts already have burn bans in effect, as well as bans on state and federal lands, Elmore County Sheriff Rick Layher has issued a burn ban for all of Elmore County, effective immediately.

The only exception is for those who are camping or using the Boise National Forest. For more information on burning restrictions in the Boise National Forest, call the U.S. Forest Service at 587-7961.
