Striving to make Torrance County a fire safe community!


Control Burn Policy - Every day the Fire Chief advises Dispatch if control burns are allowed. Please contact Dispatch for approval prior to burning. They will let you know if the Fire Chief approves of control burns for the day and take your information so that your local area Fire Department can be notified in the event that they or we recieve smoke sighting calls. Dispatch 384-2705 or 384-9631

Instructions to Burn

In order to burn we request that you call in on the Admin lines first and we will let you know if the County Fire Chief has a “Burn Ban” in effect in which case we’ll let you know if it is ok to burn for that day. Then we ask for your name, address and Phone number and give you instructions prior to burning so that we can let your district fire dept know. Online Burn Permit Application
