Burn Permits

Fire Permits are Required by Law

All permits are granted at the discretion of Gray Fire Rescue and may not be issued for certain conditions such as wind.

Fire Danger is measured by Class Day that is issued by the Maine State Forestry Service. Each day from April to November a Class is issued for the day.
