Fire Restrictions and Permit to Burn

Current conditions

Fire restrictions are currently  in force in Latrobe City, effective 19 November 2018 until further notice.

The Country Fire Authority declares the Fire Danger Period for each municipality (shire or council) at different times in the lead up to the fire season. It depends on the amount of rain, grassland curing rate and other local conditions.

The Fire Danger Period may be declared as early as October in some municipalities, and typically remains in place until the fire danger lessens, which could be as late as May.

Fire Danger Period is not the same as Total Fire Ban days. To find out more information visit the CFA website.

Permits to burn/burning off

Latrobe City Council will NOT be issuing any permits to burn during the Fire danger Period.

If you require a permit to burn please contact your local CFA.


The use of incinerators is banned within the municipality of Latrobe City Council.
