Brush burning season starts on January 15 and runs through April 30.
To obtain a permit:
Burning must take place at least 75 feet from a structure between the hours of 10:00 am. and 4:00pm at which time the fire must be extinguished. Only one pile of brush may be burned at a time. Make sure you have water available ready to extinguish, if needed. The best time to burn is when there is snow on the ground. Do not wait until late March or April when dry, windy conditions may cause early closing of the season.
