      It's that time of year and the Georgia Forestry Commission wants to remind everyone to apply for a permit before burning anything on their property.

      Forestry officials say they take a lot of factors into consideration like the wind and humidity before granting a burn permit.

      Officials want to make sure the weather conditions are appropriate for burning leaf piles so it doesn't become a fire emergency.

      If you need a burn permit call 1-877-652-2876
