2017 Burn Ban

May 2, 2017

Burn Ban in effect until May 14th, 2017!

The ban, which began in March, is not set to end until May 14. Residential brush fires are allowed most of the year in towns with fewer than 20,000 people, but they are prohibited in spring.

When the snow melts and temperatures rise, grass and vegetation are exposed and dried, increasing the risk of wildfires, according to the Department of Environmental Conservation.

Open burning of debris is the largest cause of wildfires in spring in the state.

Campfires that use charcoal or untreated wood are allowed. Burning garbage or leaves is prohibited all year.

The DEC said violators of the state’s open burning regulation are subject to both criminal and civil action and can face a minimum $500 fine on the first offense.
