Hamilton Fire Chief Phil Stevens reminds residents that there is no outside burning allowed without a permit except for cooking fires.

It is extremely dry outside and no permits will be granted for fire pits, he said. Most of Essex County, including Hamilton, is in a severe drought, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor.

Open burning is only allowed Jan. 15 through May 1 with a permit.
