In advance of any burning between 9/15/14 and 4/14/15, burn permit applications may be downloaded from our website at www.newmellefire.org
. The form should be completed and brought to our Station #1 at 3705 Mill Street in New Melle, or you may just come to the station to fill out a form.
No open burning is to occur from 4/15 through 9/14, based largely on detrimental effects to the ozone layer. In operating with your burn permit after 9/15, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources guidelines for burning are as follows:
1. Do not burn if winds are in excess of 5 m.p.h.
2. 4’ pile maximum burning area at any one time
3. All burning to be closely and continuously attended at all times, else fully extinguished
4. All burning is to take place between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
Thank you for your compliance with rules for responsible burning. If you have any other questions on this matter, please contact us at 828-5528.
