Burn Permits Required

Any open fires in unincorporated Summit County, except for a cooking campfire within an approved pit, require burn permits from the County Fire Warden and the Department of Environmental Quality. You MUST contact Summit County Dispatch (435-336-3600) prior to burning for permit approval and notification or you will be subject to citation.

  1. We have a cabin in upper Weber Canyon we’ve owned for 50 years. We have a fire pit lined with river rocks 3 feet deep, surrounded by 20 feet of shale gravel. Do we need a permit to have a fire in our fire pit for roasting marshmallows as we’ve done for many years? The canyon is not as dry as I’ve seen in many previous years yet our HOA is telling us we are in Extreme Fire conditions.
    I’m thinking of selling the cabin and buying a vacation property elsewhere as our HOA and Summit County seem to come up with more restrictions on our enjoying the property every year.
