Burn Permits Required Beginning September 23rd

 

Tennessee ForestryNashville, Tn – With hot and dry weather leading into our fall fire season, Tennessee’s State Forester is requiring a burn permit for all open-air outdoor fires beginning Sept. 23rd.  

Typically, burn permits are required statewide Oct. 15th-May 15th.  While Tennessee has not seen an increase in the number of wildfires, and indications right now don’t suggest a high fire danger, the Tennessee Department of Agriculture Division of Forestry is putting burn permits in place early as a precaution.  If current weather conditions continue as leaf fall begins, fire danger may escalate.
