Open Burning


A resident inside the Village of Whitehouse limits may have a small camp fire on their property no larger than 3 feet in diameter by 2 feet high in a contained device with a screened lid.  The fire pit should be located in the center of your backyard away from combustible walls and buildings.  If you have any questions, feel free to call the Whitehouse Fire Department at 419.877.0363.

If the Whitehouse Fire Department is called to your residence to investigate an open burn, the fire department may need to put the fire out.
