The Town of Ellington

Bonfires and Campfires

Campfires are lawful on single and two-family property without a permit provided you are burning clean “non-processed” firewood, the fire is constantly attended, it is not exposing any property to loss by fire and it is not generating any neighborhood complaints.  Campfires on all other properties and bonfires anywhere require a permit and the applications can be found here; they are also available at the Dept. of Town Fire Marshal in the Town Hall Annex.  The application must be presented at the Dept. of Town Fire Marshal and a small fee will be collected.
