FIRE ADVISORY

Due to extremely dry weather conditions, Lamont County is issuing a Fire Advisory for all rural areas of Lamont County, including Hamlets, EFFECTIVE April 7, 2021.

A fire advisory is a warning that fire conditions are poor and deteriorating. Lamont County urges residents to only burn if absolutely necessary. There are no formal restrictions in place with a fire advisory. If conditions do not improve this advisory may be upgraded to a Fire Restriction or a Fire Ban with little notice.

Wildfires can start easily from most causes especially unattended campfires, cooking fires, and improper open-air burning practices with fire permits. Wildfires may become serious and difficult to control if not successfully contained while small.
  • Existing fire permits are still valid (no permit extensions will be issued)
  • New fire permits will be issued for small (4X4) yard debris piles only
Allowed:
  • Safe wood campfires in approved fire pits
  • Portable propane fire pits
  • Gas or propane stoves and barbecues
  • Charcoal and pellet barbeques
  • Catalytic or infrared-style heater
  • Approved and certified incinerators (for agricultural use)
