TMFPD Reminds Residents Open Burn Season Closed

Posted: Updated:

The Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District (TMFPD) reminds residents that open burn season is closed. Due to record levels of dryness and conditions which allow the potential for fire, the TMFPD has restrictions in place for any and all open burning in Washoe County for the spring season.

TMFPD is not issuing any burn permits at this time. TMFPD makes the determination to close burning based on fuel moistures, relative humidity and predicted wind and weather for the area.

Washoe County has experienced record dryness during these last few months, resulting in low fuel moistures and the increased potential for wildland fires.

Residents are reminded that they may dispose of their yard debris at any County landfill; however, open burning within the District is not allowed. Residents are subject to fines for ignoring the restrictions and will be held financially responsible for any and all incidents as a result of open burning.

Residents may call the main TMFPD office at (775) 326-6000 with further questions.
