All outside burning requires a Burn Permit that can be obtained from the Platte Canyon Fire Protection District office. Outside burning includes recreational campfires and controlled burning of slash.
Recreational Campfires: Recreational campfires are restricted to 2’ x 2’ x 2’, and can be used at anytime of the year (unless there is a burn ban). These must be on cleared ground and enclosed with rocks or a metal ring. Metal barbeques, either gas or charcoal, chimneys, and smokers are exempt from requiring a burn permit.
Controlled Open Burning: Controlled burning of slash, vegetation, pine needles and clean lumber can take place only when there is a minimum of 2” (two inches) of snow on the ground. These controlled burns are restricted to 3’ x 3’ x 3’. THE BURNING OF TRASH/GARBAGE IS NEVER ALLOWED.
Current Burn Permits WILL NOT have to be renewed. However, you will need to be aware of and follow the above changes.
If you live in the Platte Canyon Fire Protection District, you may obtain a Burn Permit (free of charge) at Station 2, 153 Dellwood Drive, Bailey, CO 80421 – Monday-Friday,
8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
If you see smoke, help us by being a “good neighbor”
where the smoke is coming from prior to calling 911.
It could be a controlled burn or smoke from a chimney.
