Burn Permits

Nebraska has regulated open burning for over 20 years. In general, open burning is prohibited statewide. (Open burning is the burning of items without using an enclosed burning area such as an incinerator or fireplace.) However, there are exceptions to the prohibition which require that permits be issued prior to the burning.  Permits for open burning are issued through the Fire Department.


To obtain a burn permit:

Call the fire station at (402) 443-1520 or call the Chief at (402) 443-6067


Any person participating in open burning without a permit may be subject to prosecution for a Class IV Misdemeanor per Nebraska Statute 81-520.02
