Welcome to the Open Burning Permit Online Purchasing Service
The Maine Forest Service is pleased to offer citizens in certain areas the option to purchase open burning permits online! Through our easy online process you will be able to purchase an open burning permit 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, providing permits are being issued at the time.
Although on line burn permits can be purchased at any time and are technically valid for 48 hours after payment has been submitted, open burning can only be conducted after 5pm and before 9am. The only exception to the allowable burning times occurs if you have purchased a permit and there is a steady rain, or the ground is completely covered with snow. Depending on what town you are burning in, there are some variances to these times. Please note that the allowable burn times associated with on line burn permits do not necessarily apply to hand written burn permits.
Please read the minimum requirements on your permit carefully and make sure you have selected the proper location before starting your fire. Permits purchased for the wrong location are considered invalid. The online service is easy and payment by credit card is quick and secure. You will be able to print your permit at the end of the online process.
Notice: On-line burn permits are only valid on class 1 or 2 days. The person requesting the permit must verify the class day by selecting the "forest fire danger report" link after 9am on the day they desire to burn.
