Seasonal Campfires and Brush Burning Permits Laconia residents who plan to kindle fires of any kind shall obtain a written fire permit from the Laconia Fire Department as required by State Law. If you are NOT the property owner, a "Non-Property Owner Authorization to Kindle Fire" must be completed by the property owner/landlord prior to obtaining a City burn permit. Seasonal permits are valid through December 31st of the year obtained.
Where to Obtain Burn Permits Permits can be obtained at the Central Fire Station on North Main Street or at the Weirs Beach Fire Station on Lucerne Avenue.

ALL burn permits obtained in person are at NO CHARGE.
