Fire danger lowered to moderate

Print Article

CATALDO — Shoshone County Fire Chief’s Association, which includes members from all local fire departments and wildland fire agencies, have determined it is time to move the fire danger to moderate for the local area: effective Friday.

We also would like to announce that burn permits for residential yard waste and burn barrels will be issued starting on Friday. To obtain your free burn permit, please visit burnpermits.idaho.gov or contact your local fire department. Please remember you are responsible for acquiring and adhering to the requirements of the permit.

The fire safety burn permit system helps to inform fire managers where burning activities are occurring, reducing the number of false runs and saving firefighting resources for instances in which it is truly needed.

For additional information or questions, please contact your local fire district:

• Shoshone County Fire District No. 1: 208-752-1101

• Shoshone County Fire District No. 2: 208-784-1188
