Occasionally, the Fire Department may be summoned to a complaint of burning. Based on the complaint, the Department may respond to determine the nature of the call and ascertain if a Burn Permit has been issued to the address. In most cases, if a permit is issued to the address and provisions of the permit are met, the permit applicant will be allowed to continue to burn. However, if it is found there is no permit issued, or the permit application is not meeting the provisions of his permit, a citation with a possible fine may be issued. Complainants will be asked to provide their name, address and telephone number as a part of the burn complaint report.
Any person who knowingly falsifies information within this application is subject to be charged with tampering with public record per Arkansas Code Annotated §5-54-121. Submitting false, vague or misleading information will void the permit.
