It is unlawful for any person to ignite, cause to be ignited, permit to be ignited, allow, or maintain any open outdoor fire in
a county without independent authority to permit fires except as provided in A.R.S. § 49-501 and A.A.C. 18-2-602. Burning
for weed abatement purposes is permitted by State Law with a written permit by a public officer. Permit must be in
possession while burning. Burning without a permit is a violation pursuant to A.R.S. § 49-502 and may be subject to citation
and/or billing by public officials.
Persons burning weeds are responsible for control of burn and liable for any resulting damages. By issuing a permit under
Arizona State Regulations, the City of Page and its agents assume no liability for the actions of the applicant or others. Any
public official has the authority to require the extinguishing of any permitted burn which is not being conducted properly
or which becomes a safety or health hazard. If any unlawful burn, without lawful authority, were to set or cause to set
other property or wildland on fire, the person is subject to criminal penalties provided under A.R.S. § 13-1706. Open burning
violations are required to be reported to the Department of Environmental Health Services.
Prior to burning AND when the fire is out, notify Page Dispatch (option 1) at 645-2463.
Consult with Fire Department if water supply or other conditions are a problem.
