March 20, 2020 - COVID-19
The City of Smyrna Fire Marshal’s Office has suspended the issuance of burn permits and all open burning activities (see definitions below) in response to the spread of COVID-19. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide information when it is okay to burn again. This will likely be sometime in the fall due to the approaching local burn ban which begins March 31st.
These types of fires ARE NOT impacted by the ban:
- Grilling or cooking using charcoal, clean wood, propane or natural gas.
- Burning of a recreational fire.
- Burning in a chiminea, portable outdoor fireplace, fire bowl or similar device.
