Brush burning is permitted in Newfields with a permit. You must contact one of the following forest fire wardens in advance to obtain a burn permit:
Ray Buxton 772-5641

Burn permits will only be issued when the risk of fire hazard is at its lowest level, usually when rain has fallen for several days or the ground is frozen and snow-covered.
Oil Burning Equipment
The installation of Oil Burning Equipment is governed by the State of New Hampshire; the permit application is available through the Town Offices during regular business hours. This permit must be signed by the Fire Chief or his Designee prior to installation.
