Fire Permits:
Fire permits (both daily and seasonal) may be obtained at the Fire Department during normal business hours.
Fire permits are required for any recreational burning during the spring, summer and fall months.
Fire permits are not required during the winter months as long as there is sufficient snow cover – a courtesy call to the Fire Department when burning during the winter months is appreciated. 

Click here for the Landowner Permission Form: A landowner permission form is required for any open burning on land that is not owned by the permit holder. The form must completely fill out. Contact the Fire Department with any questions.
