Open burning of natural vegetative debris is permitted within the Town of Leland with a permit. However, it is not recommended because of your potential liability. The Town of Leland Fire Department assumes no liability in how and what you are burning, and it is up to you to ensure you are in compliance with all local and state open burning laws.
The Town of Leland Fire/Rescue Department issues free N.C. Division of Forest Resources (NCDFR) Open Burning Permits for the entire north end of Brunswick County, including the Northwest and Navassa fire districts.
You may also obtain a burn permit at the Town of Leland Fire/Rescue Station located at 1379 River Road SE between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, and at Young's Exxon on U.S. 17 in the Town Creek community, and online at the NCDFR website. Permits issued by Leland Fire/Rescue are good for four days throughout Brunswick County. NCDFR-issued permits last for 30 days.
