Burn Ban Status
Harrison County and the City of Marshall have been lifted as of 11/03/2017. The latest burn ban for the City of Marshall was issued on Oct. 16, 2017 and was lifted 18 days later due to recent rainfall in our area. A Burn Permit must be obtained from the Marshall Fire Department prior to any burning within the incorporated city limits. Please contact the Marshall Fire Department during business hours M-F 8:00-5:00 at 903-935-4580 in order to apply for a burn permit. A site inspection is required prior to the issuance of a burn permit. Permits are valid for 90 days.
Marshall residents currently possessing a valid burn permit issued prior to the burn ban, may have 18 days added to their permit. To receive the additional days, Fire Marshal Joey Dunagan encourages residents to bring their permit the Central Fire Station located at 601 S. Grove St. once the burn ban has been lifted.
