Effective Friday, December 9, 2016, Fire Marshal Carl Peas has lifted the burn ban for the city of Murfreesboro.
“We received significant rainfall; therefore conditions are safe again for outdoor burning,” said Peas.
Peas reminds those who wish to burn, that they must obtain permission daily from Fire Administration in order to burn. “You must call 615-893-1422 between 8:00 and 10:00 am and be prepared to give your name, location, and a phone number before receiving permission to burn,” said Peas.
It is necessary to call in daily because the Fire Marshal does not allow burning some days due to certain weather or atmospheric conditions, and especially when high winds are expected. If you need to burn on the weekend, you must contact MFRD Headquarters at 615-849-2661 and speak to a Captain.
