Fire burns through undergrowth in this stock image.

A ban on the open burning of debris in Lewis and Clark County took effect Tuesday Afternoon. 

Sheriff Leo Dutton announced the closure after speaking with the Department of Natural Resources and Conservation and the Forest Service. Low humidity and expected wind played into the decision.

The fire outlook all over the state is poor, as central Montana is under a red flag warning for wildfires.
