Capital City Fire/Rescue

Open Burning in CBJ

Capital City Fire Rescue is reminding all residents that it is illegal to do any open burning within the City & Borough of Juneau without a current 2017 Open Burn Permit. For any residents that live between the Vanderbilt Hill Road and Fritz Cove Road, open burning is illegal until MAY 1, 2017. Capital City Fire Rescue would also ask that residents help with this when they choose to call and complain. Every year there are numerous complaints regarding open burning that impact actual emergency response by firefighters. Residents need to have a discussion with their neighbor first to resolve the concerns before calling the fire department. Open burning that becomes a safety concern will be investigated and a determination will be made whether the burn will be allowed to continue or not. Submitted by: Fire Marshal Daniel Jager
