Leadville/Lake County Fire Rescue (LLCFR) issues burn permits as weather conditions warrant.
Exception: Recreational and cooking fires less than 3 feet in diameter, and 2 feet in height and are confined in fireproof containers do not require a permit.
LLCFR requires burn permits for public safety and to ensure permitted sites are known. This can assist in handling calls for fire or smoke at a known burn site. LLCFR also wishes to share fire safety practices with all permittees. We appreciate the cooperation of the community to follow this process.
