There are currently no burn restrictions.
Restrictions are sometimes necessary due to increased fire danger to prevent
human-caused wildfires and protect public health and safety.
Contributing factors are weather conditions – low moisture,
high temperatures, low humidity and high winds.
Restrictions are also in place on BLM and State Lands throughout the State of Arizona.
Building, maintaining or using an open fire that includes warming or campfires is prohibited.
UL Approved Petroleum-fueled stoves, lanterns or heating devices as well as charcoal or propane barbeques are exempt from these restrictions as long as safe practices are followed.
The Burning of Trash is always prohibited by the EPA, GVFD and NACFD.
No Burn Permits will be issued during the Fire Restriction.
Questions or inquiries regarding the burn restrictions can be directed to NACFD Fire Chief Patrick Moore or GVFD Fire Chief Tom O’Donohue.
Fees: Your first two permits each calendar year are free.
(Any permit thereafter within a calendar year will have a fee of $10.00.)
Golden Valley Fire District conducts inspections of all burn permits.
The following requirements must be met and completed before the inspection, or the permit will be denied.
Inspections are performed twice a day, 9:00a.m. and 3:00p.m. if time and personnel are available. This is not a guarantee, as emergencies may come up that will take priority.
All permits are good for three (3) days.
If the area is properly prepared, the fire district representative will issue a permit and burning may commence.
Burning can only be done during daylight hours, and only if weather permits.
Note: EPA regulations prohibit burning of any household trash or waste.
