Here are the steps to take to have a fire in the fire ring by the intramural parking lot. This process can take up to a week, so you should allow enough time for JBU and the Fire Marshal to review your request without being rushed.

You will need to complete all required documentation for the Siloam Springs Fire Department and send to the Fire Marshal at This documentation includes:

1. Outside Burning Request Form: You can find this form here

2. Letter of Explanation: This letter should be a formal letter in business format. Style it to Chief Criner of the SSFD and include the details/plans for the overall event. 

3. Authorization Letter from the Registered Property Owner (JBU): Send the completed Outside Burning Request Form and Letter of Explanation to for review. Once your packet is approved, you will receive a JBU letter of authorization.

4. Site Map: You can find the required map here.

After you receive an approval from the Fire Marshal, you will then need to contact Grounds Crew at and make arrangements to use some water barrels to put out your fire at the conclusion of your event.
