  • Fall forest fire hazard season now underway

    FRANKFORT, Ky. – The Kentucky Division of Forestry is again preparing for an active wildfire season. Each year, nearly 1,500 wildfires occur in the state of Kentucky based on the 10-year average.
    Wildfires in Kentucky threaten and cause damage to homes, private property, trees and landscapes. More importantly, they place lives at risk, including those of firefighters. Most of Kentucky’s wildfires are preventable, the result of arson and careless open-burning (burning of trash, debris and brush). People start wildfires and people can prevent them.
