2017 Burning Season & Online Burning Permits:
This year, New Marlborough Fire & Rescue is converting to an online application for burn permits. Burning is permitted from January 15th and through April 30th, and permits will be available from 8:30 AM to 1PM daily, as conditions allow for open burning.
Those who can't access the permits online may still obtain a permit at the Mill River General Store and call 413-229-0246 to determine if burning is permitted that day.
*Burn only brush; no leaves, grass, hay, stumps, building debris, or other materials.
*Burning is allowed between 10AM and 4PM. All FIRES must be extinguished by 4PM.
*Avoid burning on days with high winds.

*When possible, have a garden hose or other water supply available, as well as a rake and/or shovel.
*Don't leave fires unattended.
*Burn the fire down to coals and drown with water to extinguish.
