As of October 1, 2020 the Memphis Fire Department will discontinue issuing burn permits. After that date, please contact your local township office to see if they require and issue permits.
Permits already issued will be valid for 1 year from issue date.
City ordinance regulates open burning dates for the burning of yard waste and you need not apply for a permit during this time. Small camp fires may also be enjoyed anytime as long as they are contained within an approved camp fire ring or above ground campfire device like those typically found at home supply stores.
