BULLHEAD CITY–As the temperature begins to drop the Bullhead City Fire Department would like to remind residents that open burning fires are illegal within the city limits.

However, warming and cooking fires are allowed.

They must be 15’ from all structures, trees, awnings, power lines, property lines and in an approved fire pit container. In addition, warming and cooking fires need to have constant supervision. Flames should not be excessive, and the wind shall be under ten mph. A garden hose should be connected to a nearby water supply and readily available for use if needed. The burning of trash, yard trimmings and weeds are not permitted within city limits.

Open burning permits for properties greater than 5 acres and special events are available for a fee and require approval from the Fire Marshal. Burn permit applications can be found on our website at
