Burning Permit Information

In order to comply with state and local laws regarding open fires, you must obtain a burning permit. Open burn permits are only approved for piles of brush. Burning of construction or household materials are not allowed. You can apply for a permit, free of charge, at the Hebron Fire Department Headquarters (44 Main St.). A 24/7 self-service burning permit application area is located on the front entrance wall. Simply fill out an application and leave it in the box for approval by the burning official. Permits are valid for thirty days.

Connecticut traditionally experiences high forest fire danger in the Spring from mid-March through May. DEEP's Division of Forestry constantly monitors the danger of forest fire to help protect Connecticut's 1.8 million acres of forested land. Forest fire danger levels are classified at low, moderate, high, very high or extreme. If you have received a permit from your local Open Burning Official to burn brush on your property, the permit is not valid if the Forest Fire Danger is rated high, very high or extreme and you are burning within 100 feet of a grasslands, woodlands or structures. You can access the daily fire danger by visiting: https://portal.ct.gov/DEEP/Forestry/Forest-Fire/Forest-Fire-Danger-Report.

For any questions, or additional information, you can contact the town burning official, Tony Pitrone, at 860-202-3725.
