Fire Inspections

Fire Inspections
The Fire Inspection Bureau issues permits for all fire protection equipment such as sprinkler systems, fire alarm systems, hood suppression systems and standpipe systems. Also, operational permits are issued for tents and canopies, amusement buildings, carnivals and fairs, exhibits, trade shows, pyrotechnics, etc. As required by the NC State Fire Prevention Code, these permits are required before the start of the project.
Open Burning 
Since the City of Asheboro provides a pickup service for leaves, branches and other plant growth we do not issue burning permit and it is against the law to burn such materials. Also, it is not permitted to burn garbage, tires, scrap building material, wire, paints or household chemicals.
A Fire Permit can be obtained for a bonfire after the site has been approved for such activity.
Recreational Fire
A recreational fire shall not be conducted within 25 feet of a structure or combustible materials. The fire cannot exceed 3 feet in diameter and 2 feet in height.
