Before Having a Recreational Fire
- Fill out and submit the Recreational Fire Permit below (valid for calendar year)
- Call the Recreational Fire Hotline at 952-826-0398 to ensure fire danger index is low and no bans are in place.
Laws & Privileges
In recent years, backyard fires have become more common in suburban cities, where the confines are much tighter than you'd find in the "great outdoors." As a result, the City of Edina and State of Minnesota have put Fire Codes in place to address this and related issues: Edina City Ordinance 605.
Remember, recreational fires are a privilege, not a right. With this privilege comes responsibilities that must be upheld in order for you, your friends, neighbors and children to safely enjoy a recreational fire.
