Burn Ban Now On For Unincorporated Everett and Snohomish County, WA

August 10, 2011


Call 425-388-3508 for latest burn ban info.

The Snohomish County Fire Marshal’s Office has issued what they are calling a modified outdoor burning ban effective immediately. Outdoor burning is now banned except for recreational fires. All outdoor burning permits including those that may have been issued by the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency are suspended until the ban is lifted.

So what recreational fires are allowed? According to the Fire Marshal’s Office a recreational fire is less than 3 feet in diameter and 2 feet high and is 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 a water source available (at a minimum, a charged water hose or a 5-gallon bucket of water). For the latest burn ban information you can call the county’s Outdoor Burning Information Hotline at (425) 388-3508.
