Remember, you are responsible for any fire you start and may be held liable for the cost of any damages or fire department calls, even if you hold a valid burning permit.
When used appropriately, burning permits are an important tool in wildfire prevention. They allow the public to burn legal materials in the outdoors and are proven to be effective in protecting lives, property and natural resources from the damages of unwanted wildfires.
Burning permits may be obtained online from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. You may also obtain a burning permit from the Iola Fire Department, 350 West Iola St., Iola, WI 54945 - call first at (715) 445-2515.
