Spring Burning Reminder - Always call the Burn Line! 

Call the Delta County Burn line at  970-399-2955 before you burn! The Burn Line recording will tell you if it is ok to burn or not due to restrictions. If it is ok to burn, follow the prompt to leave your name, location of the burn and a call back number. 

Never burn on a National Weather Service declared “Red Flag” fire day.

Make sure you have water and the necessary equipment to extinguish any fire you initiate. If your fire escapes your property and burns neighboring property and/or causes damages to neighboring property, you can face arson or other related charges. 

 If you feel you cannot safely manage a ditch or field fire, call 911 and request the fire department!
