Open Burning

Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District traditionally opens burning in spring depending on several factors, including but not limited to wind, temperature and conditions of vegetation.  Spring Burning is currently open, but will close May 14, 2017 at 2 p.m. 

In order to Burn, you MUST acquire a burn Permit. Permits from 2016 are still valid, and may be used beginning March 4, 2017.  To see if it is a permissible burn day and Burn Permit terms and conditions, please check the Burn Line (775-326-6000) prior to burning. 

Residents wishing to burn untreated yard debris may obtain an open burn permit from our website beginning March 4, 2017, or at our main office beginning March 6, 2017.  Burn permits will not be available until burn season opens on March 4, 2017.  Residents who have an open burn permit from 2016 may use their current permit.  You do not need to obtain a new burn permit if you received an open burn permit in the Spring of 2016.  Residents shall follow the conditions set forth on the permit.  Failure to follow the conditions on the permit will result in the revocation of the permit and possible fines associated.  Residents who have less than 1/4 acre may not obtain an open burn permit to burn on their property.  Residents who live in the Truckee Meadows Hydrographic Basin 87 may not receive a burn permit, per Air Quality restrictions, as it is prohibited to burn within the Truckee Meadows Hydrographic Basin.  For information regarding the Truckee Meadows Hydrographic Basin, residents may contact Washoe County Air Quality at 775-784-7200.
