Idaho Fire Safety Burn Permits

Individuals living outside city limits anywhere in Idaho who plan to burn for any reason—including crop residue burning and excluding recreational campfires—during closed fire season, from May 10 to October 20 every year, must obtain a fire safety burn permit.

If you live inside city limits and you plan to burn, a permit from your local fire department may be required.

As a convenience to the grower, DEQ's crop residue burning application communicates with the Idaho Department of Land's (IDL) burn permits system to assist in issuing IDL burn permits. IDL burn permits for crop residue burning may only be obtained through DEQ's system. DEQ's crop residue burning application contains links to view the IDL burn permit. For questions about fire safety permits, contact IDL at 866-581-6498.

2/20/2017 - Northern Idaho Counties - Outside of Coeur d'Alene and Nez Perce Reservation Boundaries

Meteorological Forecast and Air Quality Discussion:

outhwest flow will persist over the Northern Rockies Sunday through mid next week. A few disturbances will move through this flow causing shower precipitation to increase in coverage and intensity. The strongest surge of moisture and energy appears to be late Monday into Tuesday morning. The exact placement of heaviest precipitation is still uncertain, but some place should receive a significant amount. This southwesterly flow will keep the air mass relatively mild for this time of year. Snow levels will primarily stay above most valley locations.

Disclaimer:
This meteorological forecast discussion was prepared for Idaho Department of Environmental Quality for the sole purpose of forecasting crop residue burn decisions within the State of Idaho by DEQ staff. DEQ burn decisions do not apply to the Coeur d'Alene and Nez Perce Reservations. For forecasts and burn decisions for the Coeur d'Alene and Nez Perce Reservations, call 800-345-1007.
