Open burning season in Lemon Creek & Valley starts May 1

April 23, 2021 – FYI

Capital City Fire/Rescue wants to remind everyone that open burning season is not yet open in the Mendenhall Valley and Lemon Creek areas. Burning season will begin on May 1. The boundaries of this area are Vanderbilt Hill Road in the south and Fritz Cove road in the north. Everything in between those boundaries is in the no burn zone for this time of year.

What is allowed is the gathering and collection of brush or natural yard debris around your homes to be kept under a tarp or covering until open burn season is truly opened.

After May 1, a residential open burn permit is required. Those are available here.
