Brush Fire Season

It is that time again. The Essex Junction Fire Department wants to remind al Village residents there is no burning allowed in the Village limits. The law only allows for cooking fires, within a control pit, container. In Essex Town you are allowed to burn with a permit. Please if you decide to burn make sure you are away from all structures and have taken the necessary steps to keep the fire under your control. 

During the Spring Vermont has the perfect mixture for large grass fires and is know for continuous breeze and wind. Small brush and leaves dry quickly as the angle of the sun, the continuous wind and the light density of all the dry materials combine and just need the spark to start it all. During the first beautiful spring weekend April 12-13th there were multiple grass fries throughout Chittenden County and Vermont, one of those grass fires spread to a home. Vermont Averages 170 fires a year most being less then 10 acres.

Please pay attention to all burn notices, fire warnings and the weather before trying to burn any brush. It isn't worth getting it wrong and causing a large fire that could threaten your or your neighbor's home. 41% of all of our brush fires are caused by burning of yard waste and brush by homeowners.
