How do I obtain a “Burning Permit” and what can I burn?

Burn Permits may be obtained for FREE on the day of the burn by visiting the Kingfield Town Office – 7 days a week from 8am to 4pm OR online at www.maine.gov/burnpermit/ for a fee of $7

How do I call for an Emergency in Kingfield?
Dial 911 from your phone. Be prepared to give your name, location and the nature of the emergency so that our dispatchers may send the appropriate services as quickly as possible.
Does the Fire Department conduct Chimney and Woodstove Inspections?
The Fire Department WILL conduct a Woodstove Inspection for proper placement in your home. We can also provide a “Courtesy” inspection of your chimney; however we do NOT provide a formal letter for your insurance company due to liability issues. We can make recommendations to the home owner.
We would like to remind all residents and businesses to visibly display their Building numbers in order for the emergency personnel to quickly and efficiently expedite services. The number can be located on the house or mailbox.
