Tennessee’s fire season began October 15th and the Tennessee Division of Forestry wants to remind everyone that they must obtain a burning permit before doing any open burning. Only brush, leaves, grass, untreated or unpainted lumber or other natural plant residues can be legally burned. Burning permits can be obtained from the Tennessee Department of Agriculture, Division of Forestry between 8:00 AM and 4:30 PM, Monday through Friday by calling the DeKalb County office of the Division of Forestry at 597-4015. Burning permits can be obtained for small debris piles after hours and on the weekends by visiting www.burnsafetn.org. Think before you burn.
