On a regular basis we receive calls from citizens reporting fires, which initiate full fire incident responses by the department, sending our fire trucks, to find out that someone was burning brush or something else illegally.
Burning permits are issued under strict guidelines. Contact the Fire Department at 734.544.4225 to obtain a permit.
