Fire restrictions help prevent unwanted wildfires. Because wildfires are dangerous, there are Stage 1 Fire Restrictions and Stage 2 Fire Restrictions. Consequently, these restrictions define what activities are permitted or prohibited. Use our Fire Restrictions Finder map to know before you go!

Fire restrictions are set using statewide-approved guidelines. The guidelines follow criteria set in the interagency 2022 Idaho Fire Restrictions Plan.

When fire restrictions are in place, following them is required by law.

IDL also issues free burn permits. Burn permits are required under Idaho law for any burning, excluding campfires, outside city limits from May 10 through October 20.
