WRITTEN PERMITS REQUIRED TO BURN BRUSH AS OF MONDAY, MARCH 22, 2021
(Wolfeboro) --- As Wolfeboro property owners begin to think spring and yard cleanup chores, they may look to burn the piles of brush, branches, and similar debris they have accumulated. Written burn permits are required as of Monday, March 22, 2021. Daily brush burn, campfire and seasonal campfire permits are available online at https://www.wolfeboronh.us/fire-rescue-department/news/line-permits-now-...
State law requires written permits for any type of burning on the ground, including campfires and cooking fires. Permits are not required for most charcoal and gas barbecue grills.
The permit applicant must be at least 18 years old, own the property, and provide a home address and telephone number. A renter needs written permission from the propertyowner. Daily brush permits are only valid for the date they are issued, and allow burning between 5pm and 9am on the day of issue.
