If you plan to burn, the WFFPD Fire Marshal is requesting that you contact Lincoln County Central Dispatch at 636-462-3265 and advise them of your name, phone number, address, approximate size of the burn area, and the approximate time you plan to start burning. This will assist the WFFPD as well as Central Dispatch for calls that may come in from citizens that “drive by” and see smoke and or fire.

YOU MUST ATTEND THE FIRE UNTIL IT HAS COMPLETELY EXTINGUISHED ITSELF OR IT HAS BEEN EXTINGUISHED!
