Storm debris burn permits free to tornado victims

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA, TN. (Times Free Press) -- The Chattanooga-Hamilton County Air Pollution Control Bureau is issuing free storm debris burn permits for residents in unincorporated Hamilton County who were directly affected by Friday's EF3 tornado.

Residents must obtain a storm debris permit before burning, and all storm permits will require an inspection, officials said. Those who already have a burn permit may use that permit to burn storm debris.

Amber Boles, spokeswoman for the bureau, said there are some regulations.

Residents may burn only brush or clean, raw, untreated and unmanufactured wood in piles no larger than 12 feet by 12 feet, and no taller than 12 feet high.
