District One Fire offers a variety of chimney brushes free of charge. We encourage residents to borrow our brushes to make sure chimneys are kept clean!
CLEAN YOUR CHIMNEY REGULARLY – Chimneys should be cleaned and inspected at least once per year
BURN CLEAN – Burn only thoroughly seasoned wood (dry for at least 6 months) This may help to reduce creosote buildup and ensure a hotter fire to keep your home warm.
Types of Fires Requiring Permits:
Under Idaho law, permits are required for all fires (excluding campfires) for any burning outside city limits
Campfires are restricted based on current fire conditions. Type 1 or Type 2 restrictions may be in effect during very high to extreme fire danger as determined by state and local agencies
Fires are restricted to natural wood/brush only. Construction materials and non-wood-based items are prohibited.
Please be responsible for your campfire. Fires should never be left unattended and make sure to drown the fire with water, stir remains, add more water and dirt, and stir again. If it’s cool enough to touch, it’s cool enough to leave.
