Can I burn leaves on my own property?

Chapter 10, Article III of the Fire Prevention and Protection Code bans outdoor open burning except in areas zoned AG (agricultural district). In these areas open burning is allowable with notification to the Fire Department. Other types of open burning such as for recreational purposes do not require prior notification, although the fire marshal reserves the right to prohibit any open burning during a fire alert, warning, or when atmospheric or local conditions make such burning hazardous.
