Before you burn, please read the following!
You are responsible for ensuring a safe and controlled burn!
A permit is required to burn items on your property. You can obtain one free of charge at City Hall. Even with a permit, burning is prohibited between 6:00 PM and 9:00 AM.
When dry weather conditions exist, Henderson County institutes a temporary burn ban. The City strictly enforces these bans within city limits. Burn permits will not be issued while a burn ban is in effect. You can receive a citation if you ignore a burn ban.
The City of Eustace allows residents to burn limited material on their property. Please use safety precautions when you conduct a controlled burn and be aware of the following:
- You are not allowed to burn certain types of items, including those listed in the yellow box on the right.
- Never leave a fire unattended.
- Pay attention to wind conditions. If it is windy outside, please use common sense and do not risk the destruction of your property or others'.
- Remember that you are not just monitoring the fire on the ground. Burning ash rises into the air and can start fires a good distance away.
- Do not burn items in close quarters with structures or trees. 50 feet is generally considered a safer distance to prevent airborne ash from starting a fire on a nearby structure.
- Be considerate of your neighbors and avoid burning on a day when smoke will drift to their residence.
- Take thorough precautions to ensure that a fire is completely out before you leave it.
- Please remember: IF YOUR FIRE GETS OUT OF CONTROL AND DAMAGES OR DESTROYS SOMEONE ELSE'S PROPERTY, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE .
If you lose control of a fire, CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY!
