The Carson City Fire Department is lifting fire restrictions on Saturday, Oct. 23 for privately owned lands, marking the start of the 2021 fall open burn.
The purpose of the open burn period is to provide residents an opportunity to dispose of accumulated weeds and yard debris. To make this a safe endeavor for those involved, the Carson City Fire Department will require a burn permit.
Permits can be obtained online at www.carson.org/openburn. Follow the “FALL 2021 PERMIT” link to access the permit. The permit outlines instructions and requirements for safely burning.
Residents participating in fall burning will need to keep a hard copy of the permit on their person while they are burning yard debris.
The 2021 Fall Open Burn will run from Oct. 23 to Nov. 21, dependent on permit status and daily weather conditions.
For questions or concerns, call the Carson City Fire Department’s Fire Prevention Division at 775-887-2210, extension 7145, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays. Permits are no longer available in any Carson City administrative offices. The online document link is the only way to access the permit.
