Mason County extends burn ban to include recreational fires!

From the Mason County Fire Marshal:
In accordance with a policy of the Mason County Commissioners to be consistent with the Dept. of Natural Resources and restrict certain burning activities when the National Fire Danger Rating System is at a “High” level, effective Friday July 7, 2023, recreational burning (campfires, cooking, including charcoal grills and pleasure fires in a concrete, rock or steel ring) shall be prohibited on all Mason County lands not under DNR or Federal jurisdiction.

Please note that Residential and Land Clearing burning were restricted in June which means no type of open burning will be permitted in the County. Your cooperation in helping keep Mason County fire safe this fire season is appreciated.
