The New Milford Fire Marshal has suspended all burn permits until further notice.  Northville Fire Department says this is because Connecticut has been hit with concerning weather conditions - not only a drought but high winds as well. Branches and trees have fallen, leaving dead brush laying around. Normally, the Fire Marshal issues permits allowing residents to burn this brush under certain conditions, but firefighters say Connecticut is not under those conditions, and in fact it's just the opposite.  New Milford's fire departments say they will have a zero-tolerance policy for any outside burning as a result of the permit suspension. Anyone seeing outside burning is asked to call 911, though any questions regarding permits should be directed to the Fire Marshal’s office.
