No such permit or permission shall be issued to kindle, build, maintain or use a fire within 15 feet of a fire hydrant or within two feet of any concrete curb or the surface or any permanent pavement. Burning, as permitted, shall also be subject to additional proper safeguards as the chief of the fire department may prescribe. All burning of materials permitted shall be conducted on still days, during daylight hours, with an adult in constant attendance and shall be done in the location of at least 50 feet from any building or structure and where standing grass or weeds will not communicate fire to nearby property.
The open burning of materials in the city is controlled by federal regulation and state statute. The city’s ordinance 5.18.12-16 establishes specific details for the process of open burning on a day-to-day basis. The city’s Central Dispatch Center issues permits and instructions.
Arkansas law prohibits most outdoor burning, but there are certain exceptions. Please contact the Fire Department for specifics.
