Burn Period Currently: Open
For special permits such as fuels reduction, special event/ceremonial, etc please contact the Fire Department.
The regular burn period runs March, April and May, with a provisional burn period in the fall. Within the allowed burn periods permits are valid for the calendar year. With a valid burn permit citizens can burn dry vegetative waste only. Even with a valid permit, citizens must contact Butte County Air Quality Management District to ensure that it is a permissible burn day; if burning is suspended due to fire hazard or air quality reasons it will be reflected in the recording. See the application for specific requirements. From mid-February until May 31, permits can be purchased with a credit card using the link above, or at Paradise Fire Station 81 at 767 Birch St, paying with cash or check only. The cost for a residential burn permit is $24.64.
