The Laramie County Commissioners have approved a partial burn ban for Laramie County beginning on Friday May 4th at 8 a.m. Bill McHenry, Deputy Director of Laramie County Emergency Management, says there will be no open burning allowed in the county between the hours of 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. McHenry says if you choose to conduct an open or controlled burn, take the following precautions:

  • Use a cover over the burn container consisting of a heavy mesh screen with no larger than 1/4 inch openings.
  • Clear the area around the burn container to a radius of at least 10 feet.
  • Have a fire extinguisher or water hose readily available and keep a rake and shovel nearby to help control the fire.
  • If burning on the ground, keep the burn pile small and under control and never burn anything when windy conditions exist.
  • Always call the non-emergency number for the 911 center at 637-6410 to report a controlled burn before you start and when you are done.

McHenry says unlike in year’s past, under this year’s partial burn ban, Wyoming residents will be allowed to purchase fireworks in Laramie County. However, the discharge of fireworks in unincorporated areas of the county is prohibited, except at the  designated “Fireworks Shoot Site” at West College Drive, about 1/2 mile east of the I-25 exit in Cheyenne.That site will be open June 30th-July 4th.
