Open Burning

Burning is closed within the Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District due to predicted high winds.  We currently do not know if or when we will re-open burning.  Please check the burn-line daily to get the most up-to-date information.  If the burn line reflects no burning, there is no burning allowed that day.

Residents of the TMFPD will be allowed to burn vegetation and ditches in preparation for spring irrigation. Permits with all required restrictions and information may be downloaded from this site, and DO NOT need a representative signature to validate the permit.   Burning must conclude by 2 p.m. each day and residents must adhere to the regulations listed on the burn permit. Residents are subject to fines if they do not follow the regulations of the permit or burn outside the permissible burn times and dates.  Burning of material in a burn barrel or the burning of trash is not allowed at any time. 

TMFPD asks all residents to follow the guidelines on the burn permit and pay close attention to the winds and proximity to structures before burning. Residents are required to call the TMFPD burn line prior to burning at (775) 326-6000 ext. 3 to verify it is a permissible burn day for TMFPD.  If there are predicted high winds or red-flag warnings at any time during the open burning period, burning will be shut down until conditions improve. 

Residents may call the main TMFPD office at (775) 326-6000 with further questions.
