Debris burning season arrives locally
March 4, 2020
As part of the Western Montana Zone, Jefferson County is, as of March 1st, transitioning from the winter burning season into the open burn period that runs annually from March through the end of November.
While the air quality restrictions are relaxed during this open burn period, burn permits are still required for fires over 48" in size. Those who need a permit can log onto the system at https://app.mt.gov/burnpermit/ to purchase and activate their permits. Remember that your permit must be activated every day you plan to burn, and that you are responsible for any fire you ignite.
