Burn ban is in effect for McKenzie County

Agriculture

The McKenzie County emergency manager is asking people to check the weather outside before burning.

The McKenzie County  Commission voted unanimously on Tuesday to ratify the emergency manager’s burn ban request.

Emergency manager Karolin Jappe said she felt it was time to issue one because there have been several small grass fire in the county and 500 acres of land near Tioga,ND was burned up recently in William County.

The burn ban will follow the fire index rating system.

The fire danger is low for Mckenzie County currently. 

“If it is low or moderate. . . yes. . .  you can burn. If it is high, extremely high, or red flag, there is no burning at all,” said Jappe.

She is also advising people to check the fire index rating system daily.

Fourteen counties currently have burn bans in place.
