Burn Bans

Some counties have enacted county-level burn bans, and the language of these bans varies greatly. Please contact your local county government to find out more about burn bans in your area. Local GFC officials decide on a day-by-day basis whether conditions are safe for burn permits to be issued. If you apply for a permit and do not receive one, please understand that conditions simply are not safe for burning on that particular day.
