Missouri Dept. of Natural Resources Open Burning Regulations are posted on the site. Please click on the Open Burning Regulations tab at the left to see the regulations. We ask that anyone with questions regarding open burning contact the Fire District Business Office two to three days in advance of your planned burn so we can gather some basic information and answer any questions that you may have regarding state and local laws. If there is no answer at the fire station please leave a message and we will contact you with any questions or special instructions we may have.
