Burning Permits

Open Burning Rules


If you are planning on burning weeds, tree leaves, garden waste or yard trimmings (excluding grass clippings) grown on your property, you must obtain a burning permit from the Twin Falls Fire Department. This permit is free of charge and can be obtained at our main fire station located
345 2nd Avenue East.

Below you will find a list of rules that must be followed when burning:

 

  • No burning shall be done before 8:00 A.M. or later than 7:00 P.M.
  • Fires shall be under constant observance by the permittee, or other competent person acting for him, and shall not be permitted to smolder, give off heavy smoke, flying sparks, noxious odors, or otherwise create a nuisance in the neighborhood.
  • Material burned under this permit shall not contain bones, rags, rubber, petroleum products, plastics, asphalt or composition roofing, tar, tar paper, paints, or be too wet or compact to burn freely.
  • The person whom this permit is issued shall be responsible for such fire and the observance of the above conditions.  A violation of or failure to observe any of said conditions by said permittee, or by any other person acting under this permit, shall constitute a misdemeanor by the permittee as well as by such other person, and the permit may be revoked.


Warning: DO NOT BURN OPEN FIRE WHEN WIND IS BLOWING OR NEAR ANY COMBUSTIBLE STRUCTURES!
