Burn permits required starting this week
Starting May 10, Idahoans must obtain a fire safety burn permit from the Idaho Department of Lands (IDL) before starting certain controlled burn activities.
The permits can be obtained online at burnpermits.idaho.gov or in person at IDL offices statewide.
The fire safety burn permit is free of charge and good for 10 days after it is issued. Permits issued through the self-service web site are available seven days a week, issued immediately, and valid immediately.
