Getting a burn permit for your area has never been easier. Go to www.michigan.gov/burnpermit and use the "interactive map" to find the burn conditions in your area. If "YES" appears in the Burning Permits Issued column, you are authorized to burn today and serves as your burn permit, no need to print anything. Camp fires do not require a permit.
You can also call 1-866-922-2876 between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. seven days a week. After listening to the pre-recorded message, you can stay on the line and a representative will speak with you. It is important to find out if burning is permitted each day, it could prevent possible mishaps and/or fines.
