Open Burning Regulations
All types of open burning (except for small cooking fires) require permission from the Fire Department. When permission is granted, the fire must be in a clear area, well away from trees, tall grasses, or anything else that could catch fire, and must be attended at all times until it is completely out.
Cooking fires must be no larger that two feet by two feet, contained in a stone, brick, or block enclosure, or a barrel or pit, and at least 50 feet from a dwelling.
Copies of the open burning regulation are available at the Administration Building Monday – Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
