BEFORE YOU BURN IT, GET YOUR PERMIT
Fire permits help us to track what is burning on the landscape. If you're burning within the Forest Protection Area without a fire permit or outside fire permit conditions, your fire is considered a wildfire. Do not burn during windy conditions. You must evaluate the weather at your specific location and follow the conditions of your permit. You are responsible if a fire escapes the burn permit area. Extinguish all fire before the permit expires. Contact your local fire guardian or an Agriculture and Forestry office for a permit.
