Town of Burlington residents,

Effective immediately, the Town of Burlington Fire Department is enacting a burn ban until further notice. Lack of rain, low humidity and warm weather has left Southeast Wisconsin in a severe drought.

This has caused vegetation to dry out, which increases the risk for a wildfire to quickly become out of control.

Outdoor grills or open flames may be used for cooking purposes only. Properly dispose of grill ashes in metal containers at a minimum of 15 feet from any structure and water them down when finished.

Be extra careful with any outdoor flames, campfires, and equipment use. Please check any recent debris burns for smoldering embers, as breezy conditions can cause fires to rekindle.


Fire Safety Tips

-Check before you burn, monitor conditions and restrictions daily

-Operate equipment (chainsaws, lawn mowers etc..) early in the morning or late in the day to avoid sparks at peak burn hours.

-Secure dragging trailer chains

-Delay having campfires until evening hours as fire conditions tend to improve. Keep them small and contained. Make sure the fire is completely out before leaving it unattended.

-Report fires early, dial 911


If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Chief’s office using the information listed below.

Respectfully submitted,

William R. Vrchota
