Burn Ban Lifted for Brunswick County Sept. 25 at 4 p.m.

BOLIVIA, N.C. – As of 4 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 25, 2019, the burn ban will be lifted for the unincorporated areas within Brunswick County.

Unincorporated areas are areas not in a city or town. If you’re located in either a city or town, please contact your local municipal official related to open burning.

Fire Marshal Andrew Thompson wants to remind citizens that only natural vegetation that includes leaves, tree trimmings, or yard debris may be legally burned within 100 feet of any structure. Also, any outdoor burning that occurs more than 100 feet from a structure requires a North Carolina Forestry burning permit.

A North Carolina Forestry burning permit can be obtained either in person during normal business hours at the Brunswick County Code Administration building located at 75 Court House Drive Building I in Bolivia, North Carolina or by completing a free online permit application at http://www.ncforestservice.gov/burn_permits/burn_restriction_b.asp. Permit holders are encouraged to contact the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office Communications Center at 910-253-2505 and let them know you have obtained a forestry burn permit and will be burning.

Additional information may be obtained by calling the Brunswick County Fire Marshal’s Office at 910-253-2041 or the North Carolina Forestry Brunswick Office at 910-755-7772.
