Burn permits ensure the use of open burning is done legally and in a coordinated manner with the Fire Departments. Most open burning in Larimer County requires a permit and can be obtained through the Larimer County Website. Every burn permit requires calling dispatch centers so that fire engines will not be dispatched unnecessarily to investigate the smoke produced from the burn.
