The Town of Bergen and Village of Stoddard, in conjunction with the Stoddard-Bergen Fire Department, is issuing a Burning Ban.
When the Current Fire Danger reaches "Very High" (orange) or "Extreme" (red), an immediate burning ban will be placed. The Forestry Department of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Recourses sets these levels.
Burning 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 shortly with the current weather pattern. This ban will be in place until conditions significantly improve.
That applies to burn piles, barrels, and all campfires unless in developed camping areas. Use caution in disposing of matches, ashes, charcoal briquettes, or any burning materials outdoors. All firework use is banned. Remember to dispose of cigars, cigarettes, or pipes in a designated receptacle.
Charcoal grills may be used only near a residential dwelling on a non-combustible surface, such as concrete.
