Fire Marshal Bill Halstead has extended the open burning season to May 15.
Normally, the open burning season concludes at the end of March, but when weather conditions allow, the season is extended.
Open burning permits, which are required for the activity, are issued at the fire marshal’s office at Newtown Municipal Center, 3 Primrose Street. Permits cost $5. Office hours for the fire marshal are 7 am to 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday.
