Beach pit fires are allowed on the beach in the Town of Nags Head with a permit. Permits are only issued between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. daily based on current wind speed and fire danger conditions. Permits are valid the day of issue only, through midnight, and are valid only within the Town of Nags Head.
Permits are issued online via our Fire Permit Website, as well as one of two of our Fire Stations.
During special events or fire conditions the permits will be disabled for a period of time depending on the situation. If they are disabled for the day please visit us again on the next day. Examples of special fire conditions include days that the town is showing fire works (4th of July) or during a state issued fire ban.
