You can now pick up a burn permit at the fire station: Mon-Fri 9am-8pm. Sat & Sun 9am-6pm or you may go to http://www.maine.gov/dacf/mfs/ to purchase a permit.
A common question is: Why can I only burn after 5pm and before 9am, unless it’s raining? Over 90% of all wildfires in Maine occur between 9am and 5pm, when the temperatures are warmest the wind picks up and the relative humidity drops. Since the “wait to burn until after 5pm” policy has been in effect, there has been a significant decrease in escaped debris burns.
