Spring 2019 Open Burn

Post Date:03/14/2019 8:36 AM

The Carson City Fire Department will allow open burning March 16, 2019 to April 14, 2019. 
The purpose of the open burn period is to provide residents an opportunity to dispose of accumulated weeds and yard debris.  In order to make this a safe endeavor for those involved, the Carson City Fire Department will require a burn permit with a valid permit number before burning will be allowed. Permits must be obtained no less than 24 hrs. prior to conducting an open burn. 
Permits will be issued on a walk-in basis starting March 14, 2019 at the following location: 

 Station 51 / Headquarters at 777 S. Stewart St., M-F, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Or, beginning March 14, 2019, you may use our convenient online permit application form page found at carson.org/openburn.  If you apply online, you will also need to download or print a copy of the blank interactive PDF permit form to complete the process. Please keep in mind, all permits must have a valid permit number in order to conduct an open burn.   For additional questions or concerns, please call the Carson City Fire Department’s Fire Prevention Division at 887-2210, ext. #2, 8-5 p.m., M-F.
