Bozeman, Montana – All burning is prohibited inside the city limits of Bozeman.
Bozeman Fire Chief Josh Waldo issued an emergency order on Wednesday, July 21, 2021, prohibiting all burning in city limits. This order guarantees that the existing countywide fire ban, which was passed by the Gallatin County Commission earlier this week, remains in effect.
The burn ban applies to all open burning, recreational fires, outdoor fire pits, and charcoal grills, among other things.
Fireworks are forbidden inside city limits, with the exception of specific hours and days around the Fourth of July and New Year’s holidays.
“We are experiencing extremely dry and fire-prone conditions in our entire community. Be vigilant and exercise personal responsibility. Consider your choices and the impacts they may have even with your day-to-day activities. Things like driving, smoking, or towing anything that may cause a spark are simple things that could have grave impacts if poor choices are made,” said Fire Chief Josh Waldo.
