Cape Coral burn ban rescinded

By Staff | Jun 18, 2024

As of today, the Keetch-Byram Drought Index has been below 600 for seven consecutive days, so the temporary burn ban issued by the City of Cape Coral on June 5 has been rescinded

Residents are urged to continue to use caution with recreation and cooking fires. Recreational fires must comply with the stipulations of the City’s Code of Ordinance for recreational burns, such as being 25 feet from any structure, having an extinguishment source, and the fire must be kept to a maximum of 3-feet in diameter and 2-feet in height.

Recreational fires are not intended for vegetation or rubbish disposal, per Ordinance. More information on burning in the City of Cape Coral can be found at: www.capecoralfire.com/burn-regulations.

In addition, the Cape Coral Fire Department continues to request the community be vigilant in not disposing of lit smoking materials outdoors, including from a car window.
