How do I obtain a burn permit?

The City of Murfreesboro does not issue burn permits. However, you must contact the Murfreesboro Fire & Rescue Department (MFRD) Administration at 615-893-1422, between 8 and 10 a.m. the day you would like to burn to find out if the fire marshal is allowing burning. The fire marshal decides on a daily basis whether or not it is a burn day according to weather, atmospheric conditions, etc.

You will be asked for your contact information and where you will be burning. On weekends, you may contact MFRD Headquarters at 615-849-2661. If you are in the county, you must contact the State of Tennessee Department of Agriculture’s Division of Forestry at 877-350-2876.
