We use Warden's Report as our Burning Permit System. You can find instructions on how to apply for a permit.
NARRAGANSETT POINT (BEACH FIRE PIT) - You MUST come into the Fire Station on the day that you wish to have a fire at the fire rings provided at Narragansett Point. A maximum of 2 permits daily will be allowed on a first come first served basis. Phone calls will not be permitted.
All other burn permits are available online through Warden's Report. Seasonal campfire permits also will be done through Wardens Report each day the occupant/resident wants to burn.
Burn permits are issued through Warden's Report starting at 9:00 a.m. each day once the State of Maine Forest Service has determined the Fire Class Day. Kennebunk is located in Zone 10. If Fire Danger is a class 3 or higher there will be no burning permits issued. The officer in charge may also choose to shut down burning even on a class 2 day if winds are predicted to be high or if wind gusts increase more than originally predicted for that day as well as any time they feel there is a higher danger. Kennebunk is located in Zone 10. Burning may not start until after 9:00 a.m. and must be finished by 11:00 p.m.
All burn permits are for clean wood products only, and piles are to be kept small (i.e., 3’ diameter piles). Burning of highly combustible materials and/or domestic, household trash such as paper and cardboard is prohibited by law.
These permit policies are recommended standards, suggested by the Maine Forest Service. These policies are in place to protect life and property and help the Fire Department in controlling the possibility of fires getting out of control. If you have any questions concerning these policies, please feel free to contact the Kennebunk Fire Rescue at 207-604-1354.
