Cost is $5.00 for burning within the West Yellowstone Town's Jurisdiction. If your address is located within the Gallatin County jurisdiction you must purchase and activate burn permit through their website directly.

  • Clean up the burn site before departing.
  • Never leave an active fire unattended.

  • Be prepared for the unexpected and have fire suppression equipment close.
