"Debris burning is now CLOSED throughout Jefferson County due to current fuels conditions and the upcoming weather forecast," a Tuesday morning Facebook post said.
The burn ban applies only to debris burning, not campfires. Anyone who starts a campfire should make sure it's completely out and cold to the touch before leaving, the sheriff's office said.
Lewis and Clark County recently closed debris burning as well.
