Snohomish County Fire Marshal's Office

Due to high fire danger and expected hot and dry weather conditions, a modified outdoor burning ban for the unincorporated areas of Snohomish County will go into effect Thursday, July 15th, 2010, at 8:00 a.m.

This restriction bans outdoor burning, except for recreational fires. Recreational fires are less than 3 feet in diameter and 2 feet high and are for cooking and pleasure only. Recreational fires must be contained within a fire pit that has been cleared of all combustible material within a 10 foot radius, must be monitored at all times and must have water source readily available (at a minimum, a charged water hose or a 5 gallon bucket of water).

This burn ban will be in effect until further notice. Citizens within the boundaries of an ncorporated city or town please check with your local fire department for current burning ban information.
