Recreational and Open Fire Permits

While out in the yard enjoying a summer evening around the fire, remember that neighbors may not be! Be courteous, sometimes the smoke may offend others.
Remember the following guidelines:

  • Fires may only be 3 x 3 ft. and no higher than 2 ft.
  • Only clean dry wood can be burned (trash, cardboard, construction debris, and leaves are prohibited).
  • The neighbors windows may be open, be sure smoke from your fire
    is not going into their house!

The city of Farmington requires a Burn Permit for recreational and open burn fires.
