Online Fire Permits:
It's that time of year again and with the bare ground pre-eminent around us a Fire Permit is required for any outdoor burning. With a Fire Permit in hand a property owner, or their agent, may kindle an outdoor fire between 5pm and 9am. The fire must be completely extinguished by 9am. Legally burnable materials are listed on the Permit and are limited to untreated wood and brush up to 5 inches in diameter. No pressure treated lumber, no painted or stained dimensional lumber, no building debris or shingles.
I encourage you to obtain your Permit on-line line at www.nhfirepermit.com or just Google 'nh fire permit'. An on-line Permit will cost you $5.50. Please print it out so you have a copy. If, for whatever reason, you can't get an on-line Permit, they are available at the Town Hall during regular business hours, at the Central Fire Station when someone is there and at Ben Adriance's at 368 Whiteface Road next to the Whiteface Fire Station. For seasonal campfire Permits please contact me at (603) 387-7104 or (603) 284-6450.
Even with a Permit, don't burn if it is windy or dry. Use common sense and remember you are responsible for what happens once you light the match.
