Bonfire Permits

Bonfires require a permit from the JFRD Fire Prevention Chief.

Location of the bonfire must be more than 50 feet from any structure. Adequate provisions must be made to prevent fire from spreading to within 50 feet of any structure. Bonfires must be constantly attended by a competent person until the fire is extinguished. A garden hose connected to a water supply, or other fire extinguishing equipment needs to be readily available for use.

Please note that JFRD may prohibit any or all bonfires and other open burning when atmospheric conditions or local circumstances make the fires hazardous.
