Did you know if there is a trash pickup service available in your area it is illegal to burn trash and other refuse ? Yep, it sure is. Most folks are not aware of this so we are adding this information to our website as well as some links to important information to help you determine what you can and cannot burn legally.
The Little Axe Fire Department does not require burn permits for the unincorporated area we respond to for fire protection. It is appreciated however if you will notify us of your intent to perform an open burn and provide us with information about the location, time and who will be watching over the burn, so we are aware of it when calls come in for the same location. You can reach us for this non-emergency event by calling (405) 386-7700.
If you happen to live in the area and are actually within the Norman City limits, other laws may apply. The City of Norman requires burn permits if you live within the city limits. You can reach them at (405) 292-9780.
Clicking on the link below will take you to the Oklahoma DEQ Open Burning Fact Sheet. More information can be obtained by contacting DEQ directly at (405) 702-6100.

We hope you find this information useful and that it allows you to make good decisions about what, when and most importantly, "IF" it is ok to burn.
Feel free to contact us any time for more information or to even schedule a site visit by a fire department representative. You can also drop by the station behind Pecan Valley Junction Store any Wednesday night between 6:00pm and 9:00pm during our regular weekly scheduled maintenance and training.
