Fire Department issues burning permits

Continue reading below

The Fire Department is now issuing open burning permits. There is no cost for the permit. Open burning in Massachusetts is regulated by the state Department of Environmental Protection and enforced by local fire departments. The burning season runs from Jan. 15 to May 1. A valid permit from the town’s Fire Department is required. The fire chief reserves the right to deny open burning on any day based on weather or environmental conditions. Town officials encourage residents who wish to obtain an open burning permit to use North Andover’s online system to register. For more information or to access the online system, visit the town website at and click on the link to the 2013 burn permit application from the home page.
