2021 PUBLIC SAFETY BOND
As of 6/25/21: Due to dry conditions and the forecasted heatwave, all outdoor burning will close at midnight on Friday, June 25, 2021, even if your current burn permit extends beyond that date. Recreational/campfires will still be allowed, but please be extra cautious.
KCFR requires a burn permit year round. You are now able to obtain burn permits for yard waste, burn barrels, hand piled slash and machine piled slash online at burnpermits.idaho.gov. through the Idaho Department of Lands website. We will require a scheduled pre-inspection prior to burning any hand piled /machine piled slash, please call our office (208)777-8500 to schedule an appointment with our Fire Marshall. If you have issues navigating their site please feel free to call our office for assistance.
Please follow safety guidelines for burning and call the D.E.Q. Hotline (1-800-633-6247) for air quality prior to your burn. If you should have any questions call our office M-F at 208-777-8500.
