Obtain state fire safety burn permits
Department of Lands has a new website, BurnPermits.Idaho.Gov,
Idahoans to obtain state fire safety burn permits online.
Idaho law (38-115) requires any person living outside
city limits anywhere in Idaho who plans to burn anything -- including crop
residue burning and excluding recreational campfires -- during closed fire
season to obtain a fire safety burn permit. Closed fire season began May
10 and extends through Oct. 20 every year.
The fire safety burn permit is free of charge and good for
10 days after it is issued.
