Burn permits now required

| May 10, 2024 1:00 AM

People burning brush or debris must have a permit as of today.

Permits are free and can be obtained at, over the phone or in person throughout Shoshone County. 

Idaho law requires any person in Idaho who plans to burn anything during closed fire season to obtain a fire safety burn permit.  

Closed fire season begins May 10 and extends through Oct. 20.

This requirement does not apply to recreational campfires.
