**BURN PERMITS NOW REQUIRED OCTOBER 15 thru May 15**
Tennessee typically has a spring and fall fire season. The spring fire season, prompted by warming weather, begins about February 15 and ends near May 15th, when the forest has usually "greened up" enough to prevent the rapid spread of forest fires. Fall fire season begins around October 15, when the leaves begin to fall and usually ends December 15th due to shorter, cooler, wetter days. Because of the variations in weather, wildland fires can occur any time during the year. It is important to note that a burning permit is required for outdoor burning during the period between October 15th and May 15th.
Burn Permits can be acquired in Jefferson County by calling 865-475-3467
Monday thru Friday 8a.m. - 4p.m.
**Call on Friday before 4p.m. to obtain burn permits for the weekend**
