Backyard Burn Season Opened March 18th and run thru May 20th!

The Spring 2017 general backyard burn season will be opening this Saturday, March 18, and run through May 20, 2017.

Download burn permit from this link.

Residents participating in general backyard burning will be instructed per the permit to call the East Fork Fire burn line each day they wish to burn. A recording will advise whether it is a permissive burn day and what the permissive burn hours are for that day. The burn days and hours will be determined by the Battalion Chief; burning can start as early as 0700 hours and must be completely extinguished by 1530 hours.

It is the responsibility of the burner to have the correct burn permit on the premises and to check the burn line to confirm burn day status and hours.
