Map

The Division of Forestry is responsible for fighting wildland fires on private lands and enforcing forest fire hazard seasons and other outdoor burning regulations.  KRS 149.400 restricts outdoor burning during Forest Fire Hazard Seasons:

Spring Forest Fire Hazard Season:     Feb. 15 through April 30
Fall Forest Fire Hazard Season:    Oct. 1 though Dec. 15

During this time, it is illegal to burn anything within 150 feet of any woodland or brushland between the daylight hours of 6 a.m. and 6 p.m.  The law is intended to prevent forest fires by allowing outdoor burning only after 6 p.m. when conditions are less likely to cause a wildfire to spread.
