Open Burning Rules

Open burning is generally prohibited within the city of Dayton, with just a few exceptions, or unless a permit has been issued. In the case of a permit requirement, both the Dayton Fire Department and the Regional Air Pollution Control Agency (RAPCA) may need to approve the fire. Detailed information about the City's Open Burning policies can be found below.
