Statewide Burn Ban Status for 05/22/2024 22:50 EDT Return to IDHS Home »

Restrictions on outdoor burning activities or "burn bans" can be ordered by any local fire chief for his or her jurisdiction, or they may be imposed by the legislative body of a city, town or county. While the Indiana State Fire Marshal does not declare local burn bans, the Fire Marshal supports local efforts to reduce the fire risk escalated by dry weather.

County leaders consider several factors when making the decision to issue a burn ban.

  • Soil conditions
  • Relative humidity
  • Wind speeds
