Open burning for which a burn permit is required is allowed in the Fort Ellis Fire Service Area

Fort Ellis Fire Department officials will evaluate fire conditions on a day-by-day basis to determine if conditions warrant temporarily closing the burn permit system. Please be sure to purchase a burn permit and to activate it BEFORE any outside burning. Please see the Burn Permit page on this website for more information.
