Online Burning Permit System

Warning: Dry conditions in the western part of the state mean an increased danger of wildfire. If you burn outdoors make sure weather conditions will not allow it to spread and that you keep a careful eye on it with tools such as water and a shovel at hand.

To report a smoke issue, please call your regional Division of Air Quality office.

If you wish, you may view the North Carolina General Statute Chapter 106, Article 78: Regulation of Open Fires.

Before filling out an open burning permit application, please familiarize yourself with these Air Quality regulations related to outdoor burning.

If you are already familiar with the Air Quality regulations, please proceed to the Burn Permit Application Pages by selecting the county you wish to conduct burning in from the list below
