Yes. Currently, the Ohio Revised Code (ORC) states that the State Fire Marshal restricts burning within the state during the months of March, April, May, October and November between the hours of 6 a.m. - 6 p.m. This applies to all outdoor fires.
O.R.C.1503.18 is under the authority of the Ohio Division of Forestry. This law prohibits outdoor opening burning statewide in unincorporated areas during the months of March, April, May, October and November between the hours of 6 a.m. - 6 p.m. This ban includes burning of yard waste, trash and debris, even in a proper burn barrel. During spring, wildfire danger is high before plants have turned green, and in the fall, danger is high due to abundant dry leaves and dead grass. Warm, windy weather in both seasons also contributes to elevated risk. Always be sure to use a proper burn barren when burning outdoors during legal hours.
