North Dakota Fire Danger Rating Map

The ND Fire Danger Rating is issued each morning during fire season, typically April 1 to October 31. Although not very often, there are times when weather conditions that develop during the day result in a change to fire conditions. It is critical that you verify the current Fire Danger Rating and local burn ban restrictions BEFORE burning and participating in outdoor activities. Current ND Fire Danger Rating information and Fire Weather Forecasts, to include Red Flag Warnings, are located on the National Weather Service website:


For information on burning restrictions and prohibitions contact your local emergency manager or fire department.
