Brush and tree fires are allowed in the Lake Johanna Fire Department districts. Anyone wishing to have a brush or tree fire is required to obtain a burn permit from the Lake Johanna Fire Department prior to the burn. However, all persons are responsible for abiding by the following rules and regulations.
The fire department is authorized to require that open burning be immediately discontinued if the fire department determines that smoke emissions are offensive to occupants of surrounding property or if the fire is determined to constitute a hazardous condition.
Violations of any of the above rules will result in the immediate extinguishment of the fire. These and any other violations of the open burning laws may result in loss of the right to have fires and also may cause a citation to be written.
To apply for a Burning Permit with the Lake Johanna Fire Department, contact Deputy Chief/Fire Marshall Kris Rewald.
