Open Burning Laws

Division of Forestry Outdoor Burning Laws

using a drip torch


The Kentucky Division of Forestry is mandated by law to "provide for organized fire protection." This mandate is carried out through wildland fire detection, suppression and law enforcement carried out by nine districts located throughout the state. The division supplements its fire suppression efforts through cooperation with rural fire departments by providing them with training, equipment and vehicles. The division also utilizes Department of Corrections crews and Kentucky National Guard personnel and equipment during fire emergencies. These activities are funded in part by a county assessment of 2 cents for each timberland acre.
