Bon Fire / Campfire / Open Burning Permit (Submission Form)

It's fun to have bon fires and campfires in the summer, but they also present some safety hazards. Here are some tips to enjoying open burning safely:

  • Campfires should be no greater than 36 inches in diameter and a fuel load should not exceed 24 inches in height
  • A garden hose connected to a water supply, buckets, shovel, fire extinguisher or other approved fire extinguishing equipment should be readily available at the burn site
  • Only wood should be burned – no leaves, paper or trash
  • Never leave campfires unattended
  • The fire should be at least 25 feet away from any structure, fence, or right of way
  • If the burning creates a smoke nuisance, or a hazardous condition exists, the burning should be extinguished
  • Keep campfires away from dry grass and leaves
  • Always properly extinguish before leaving the areaCampfirejpg
