Fire Restrictions for Yellowstone County

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Yellowstone County will join several other nearby counties under Stage 1 Fire restrictions. The restrictions will start at midnight on Wednesday. This will prohibit open burning in the county. There is one exception; if agricultural burning is required the landowner can ask for permission to burn from the Fire Chief in their area. Yellowstone County Commissioners voted to start the restrictions after talking with multiple agencies. The resolution states the hot dry weather has dried out vegetation in the county that could start a wildfire. Carbon, Musselshell, Stillwater and Sweet Grass counties are all currently under Stage 1 Fire restrictions. Big Horn County will start Stage 1 Fire restrictions at midnight Wednesday.
