Burn Ban for DeKalb Lifted

The burn ban for DeKalb County has been lifted. Burn permits are still required to burn.

Online permits may be obtained daily from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. in Eastern and Central time zones (based on your location) for any size leaf and/or brush burn pile, as well as prescribed fires and broadcast burning, such as for forestry, agricultural, or land clearing applications. Each fire should be completely extinguished by the permit expiration. Residents with limited internet access may call the Division of Forestry burn permit phone number at 877-350-BURN (2876) Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Central. Callers may experience lengthy wait times when call volume is high, so online applications are encouraged.
