You can also access the Maine Forest Service website at www.maineburnpermit.com and obtain a permit for a fee. This permit is good for two days provided conditions are okay to burn.
Burning permits are required for the outdoor burning of leaves, grass, brush, deadwood, tree cuttings, wood debris, etc. anytime throughout the year. Depending on the current fire danger, restrictions may be in place.
Burning permits will only be issued for after 5:00 pm during the weekdays and anytime during the weekends depending on the fire danger classification. Exceptions to this rule may include class I days, rainy days with no wind and/or snow-covered ground.
Burning permits can be revoked if environmental conditions worsen, nuisance complaints are received or if the conditions of the permit are violated.
