Property owners asked to use caution while conducting debris or agriculture burns
San Rafael, Calif. – With autumn weather reducing wildfire threats, those possessing valid agriculture and residential burn permits can burn in Marin County on permissible burn days. Cooler temperatures, higher humidity, and the chance of rainfall have led the Marin County Fire Department to lift the burn permit suspension previously in place.
Property owners are asked to use caution while conducting debris or agriculture burns and follow all guidelines. Those conducting burns must maintain control of the fire. All residents must complete a LE5 California Inter-Agency Burn Permit and have it signed off by Marin County Fire. Contact your nearest Marin County Fire station for coordination and permit submittal.
Residents wishing to burn MUST verify it is a permissive burn day prior to burning. Open burn fees may apply. Visit the Bay Area Air Quality Management District for rules and regulations.
Pile Burning Requirements
Safe burning of dead and dry vegetation by landowners is a crucial tool in reducing fire hazards. State, federal and local land management and fire agencies will also be utilizing this same window of opportunity to conduct prescribed burns aimed at improving forest health and resiliency on private and public lands.
