January 15-April 30, permits for the outdoor burning of brush and forestry debris are available. With this permit, you can only burn brush (less than 4” in diameter) and forestry debris. The burning of leaves, tires, trash, stumps or building materials is prohibited and may result in the suspension of burning for the rest of the season or even fines.

Burning is only allowed between the hours of 10am and 4pm. These regulations are set by the state and are not subject to local control.
(310 CMR 7.07)

To obtain a permit log onto

If you do not have Internet access, call the dispatch office (508-867-1066) between the hours of 7:30am and 12 Noon on the day you want to burn. The dispatcher will take the information and issue you a permit number.

Do not call 9-1-1, the fire station, or the regular dispatch number. You do not need to go to the fire station.

Each permit is only good for one day, as burning may be suspended from time to time due to weather, holidays, or Fire Department concerns. Permits will not be available on Easter Sunday.

You must have adequate means to put the fire out (sufficient help, shovels, and water) and the fire can be no closer than
75 feet from any structure. Local or State Fire officials may stop by to inspect the fire and make sure you have obtained a permit.

We ask that everyone exercise common sense when burning brush and treat fire with the respect it requires, minimizing the potential for injury and property damage.
Thank you from your
Brookfield Fire Department.
