Careless debris and agricultural burning is a major cause of wildfires every year in Utah. Most people never intend to start a wildfire, but unsafe burning practices can produce disastrous results. Anyone wishing to open burn between June 1st and October 31st must first obtain a permit from the Fire Warden.
