The 2020 open burning season for Gallatin County begins Sunday.

The county has implemented a new permit system, so if you have an old burn permit you cannot renew it. You have to create a new account.

Anything larger than a 48-inch diameter recreational fire requires a burn permit that’s activated each day burning commences.

Burn permits are available in person at these locations:

  • Bozeman Fire Department, 34 North Rouse in Bozeman
  • Central Valley Fire District, 215 Wings Way in Belgrade
  • Gallatin County Treasurers Office, 311 West Main in Bozeman
  • Three Forks Library, 607 South Main in Three Forks

You can also purchase a permit online at
