Outdoor Burning

Fire Danger Ratings & Burn Ban Information

Burning Information

Burning any combustible materials outdoors in the Town of Bergen or Village of Stoddard in Vernon County is prohibited.  The risk for wildfires in these areas is very high and there’s little relief in sight in the near future with the current weather pattern. Until conditions significantly improve, this ban will be in place.

That applies to burn piles and burn barrels; all campfires unless in developed camping areas disposing of any matches, ashes, charcoal briquettes, or any burning materials into the outdoors; and all fireworks. Remember to dispose of any cigars, cigarettes, or pipes in a designated receptacle.

Charcoal grills may be used only in the immediate vicinity of a residential dwelling on a non-combustible surface, such as concrete.
