We have had several days without measurable rain and the ground cover is drying out. Now is the time to start clearing around your home and other outside structures with at least a 25-foot defendable space. Please use caution when burning leaves in the county and remember there is no open burning within city limits. If you have any questions contact your local Fire Department. Stay safe!!!

Log into the NC Division of Forestry to obtain a burning permit. As a courtesy, we ask that you call the station 828-298-2456 when you are burning. Remember you are only allowed to burn natural vegetation that originated on your property such as leaves.
