How do I obtain a burning permit?

If you live within city limits, you can obtain a burning permit from the front desk at City Hall (13065 Orono Parkway) or download a request form here. If you live outside of city limits, you can either contact a Fire Warden or purchase a permit online at the MN DNR website. Review the Burning Map for information on Open Burning Permits in Elk River. Please note: Elk River Fire does not conduct controlled burns.
