Just a reminder that as our community recovers from Hurricane Matthew that all open burning laws remain in place. A permit is required for all open burning of yard debris. At no time may you burn trash, furniture, processed wood, cardboard, etc. Nothing may be burned except natural vegetation.
Firefighters will issue permits on-site and inspect the area and materials to be burned. You must have a water source, rake or shovel and be with the open burn at all times. Burn barrels are best, but if you don’t have one available, please ensure the area in which you are burning is away from structures and other combustibles. Permits may be denied or revoked for unsafe burning or due to unfavorable weather conditions.
To obtain a permit, call the station at 252-441-6234 between the hours of 8 and 5 pm. Thank you for your cooperation.
