  • Forest fire season arrives with fall

    Although significant rainfall marked the first few days of autumn, the Kentucky Division of Forestry is busy preparing for the fall forest fire hazard season. During the season, which began Oct. 1 and ends Dec. 15, 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 placing restrictions on outdoor burning during a time of year when the potential for dry conditions and the accumulation of leaf litter increases the risks of wildfire.
