Burn spring season is officially open. Please ensure that you obtain a burn permit from Fire Administration located at 625 Ute Ave. The permits can be purchased for $25.00 for both burn seasons. There are several restrictions listed on the permit that provide guidance for safe burning. Fire Ban and Red Flag Warnings are considered a restriction for burning and Mesa County does experience these types of weather warnings this time of year.

Helpful Hints For Successful Burning:

2. Have a WATER HOSE or FIRE EXTINGUISHER at the ready.

3. Keep burn piles 50+ feet away from any structures.

4. Follow the rules on what you are allowed to burn (Do Not Burn Household Trash).
