Check if you can light a fire in your area

Why we have outdoor fire rules

  • Protect people and communities from fire.
  • Protect Auckland's air quality.
  • Prevent unnecessary emergency fire calls.


If a fire gets out of control

If a fire you start on your property escapes or gets out of control, we may pass the cost of putting out the fire onto you. Some people have been billed up to $2 million.

If you can't control it, don't light it.
