Outdoor Burning Prohibited in Ridgefield

Due to high temperatures and windy conditions, the City of Ridgefield is instituting a total recreational burning ban.

All outdoor burning including recreational fires is prohibited within the city limits beginning July 26, 2018 at 12:01AM. This ban is based on weather conditions and community fire safety needs. It will remain in effect until weather and fire danger conditions improve.

Recreational fires, campfires and fires in outdoor fireplaces or chimney-type devices are not allowed.

Safe alternatives for outdoor cooking that are not banned include self-contained camp stoves, propane or charcoal barbecues.

An update will be provided when the recreational ban is lifted.
