Current Burn Bans

Reported as of April 8, 2015

For the most up to date information regarding burn bans in Kansas, please contact your county emergency management office or your local fire department or your local law enforcement dispatch center (non-emergency number). The decision to implement a burn ban is made by county or city government leadership based on local conditions, therefore, the best information resides at the local level.


Varying levels of fire weather are forecast in multiple regions of the state over the next 24 hours. Please visit www.weather.gov for detailed information.
