County Codes for Burning Permit Hotline 1-888-WIS-BURN (947-2876)

In order to protect the health and safety of the citizens of Wisconsin, we are taking proactive measures by suspending all DNR burning permits until further notice. Therefore, all burning debris in barrels, piles on the ground and grass or wooded areas with annual burning permits in DNR protection areas is prohibited at this time. If the ground is completely snow-covered and will remain so for the duration of the burn, burning permits are not required and burning is allowed at any time.

Eliminating ignition sources on the landscape reduces wildfire risk, smoke for vulnerable populations and person-to-person contact. Emergency responders and firefighters have an increased need to take pandemic precautions so they remain available to continue to protect the public from wildfires and reduce the spread of COVID-19. We appreciate your patience and understanding.  Remember to report wildfires by dialing 911 immediately. 

*Indicates a county where the DNR does not regulate burning permits. Contact the local municipality or fire department to find out if there are any burning restrictions or ordinances in place.
