Ohio Revised Code 1503.18 Regarding Kindled Fires
O.R.C. 1503.18 is under the authority of the Ohio Division of

Forestry.

This law prohibits outdoor open burning statewide in

unincorporated areas during the months of March, April,

May, October, and November between the hours of 6 a.m.

and 6 p.m.

This ban includes burning of yard waste, trash, and debris,

even in a proper burn barrel.

During spring, wildfire danger is high before plants have

turned green, and in fall, fire danger is high due to abundant

dry leaves and dead grass. Warm, windy weather in both

seasons also contribute to elevated fire risk. Always be sure

to use a proper burn barrel when burning outdoors during

legal hours.
