A burn permit issued by Aptos/La Selva Fire Protection District is required for all backyard burning. See Frequently Asked Questions in the sidebar for information regarding backyard burning permits.
Note: Permits must be obtained by the property owner. If the owner is out of the area, a signed letter authorizing a designee may be allowed, at the discretion of the Fire Marshal. Backyard burning that is done without permits or on no-burn days will be subject to fines, where applicable.
