Fire Permits:
 
The N.H. Forest Protection Bureau is encouraging anyone seeking a fire permit in New Hampshire to use the state’s online fire permit system in order to maintain social distancing that has been recommended by the Center for Disease Control as a way of reducing the spread of COVID-19. 
 
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 (defined as at least 2” deep in 100’ any direction from the center of the fire); a courtesy call to the Fire Department when burning during the winter months is appreciated. Below please find documents pertaining to fire permits:

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 filled out EACH TIME permission is granted for burning (except in the cases of seasonal permissions). This form is PDF fillable and can be electronically signed and submitted. You may also fill out the form, print it, and return it in-person, by email, or by fax. They are also available in person at the Fire Department.
