Burn Permits

Getting a Burn Permit

Burn permits are available online at maine.gov/burnpermit. As of October 2021 this service is free. If you're unable to use this system, the town office can assist you during normal business hours.

If you need a burn permit for a special circumstance not covered by the system please contact Chief Bryan McLellan at chief@surryfire.org or 207-481-1037.

Fire Conditions and Safety

Burning is only permitted during Class 1 and Class 2 days when the wind is below 10mph. Fire danger classes are determined by the Maine Forest Service based on current weather and conditions. They are updated daily at 9am and can be found at mainefireweather.org. Surry is in Zone 11.

Minimum of 2 people. Do NOT leave your fire unattended! Shovels or rakes, and a working garden hose are required at the burn location.

PLEASE REMEMBER WINDS ARE NOT TO EXCEED 10MPH
PLEASE EXTINGUISH FIRE COMPLETELY WHEN FINISHED BURNING
