The Ban on Outside Burning in Tarrant County Has Expired


The Tarrant County Fire Marshal’s Office reminds you that if you conduct an outside burn you must:

  • Contact the Tarrant County Fire Marshal’s Office at 817-838-4660 before you burn to make sure it is an allowable Burn Day.
  • Stay with the fire at all times while it is burning.
  • Only burn from sun up to sun down — no burning at night.
  • Have water and cell phone available.
  • Consider your neighbors when burning by making sure the smoke does not blow towards a neighbor’s home.
  • Be extremely careful.
  • Only burn brush, tree limbs, grass clippings and leaves — no trash or building materials.
