Everett Fire

Everett, Washington is among cities in Snohomish County where recreational fires are again allowed. Here’s the notice from the Snohomish County Fire Marshal’s office.


To find out more call the Burn ban Hotline at 425-388-3508

Due to recent rain, the fire danger has lessened. Therefore, effective immediately, Recreational Fires are allowed.

Recreational fires are: less than three feet in diameter and two 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 a water source readily available (at a minimum, a charged water hose or a five-gallon bucket of water).

The burn ban is still in effect for outdoor burning other than Recreational fires. This means that

all outdoor burn permits, including permits issued by PSCAA (Puget Sound Clean Air Agency) for agricultural burning, are suspended until the burn ban is lifted.

Incorporated cities and towns included in this outdoor burning ban are: Arlington, Brier, Darrington Edmonds, Everett, Granite Falls, Gold Bar, Index, Lynnwood, Marysville, Mill Creek, Mountlake Terrace, Monroe, Mukilteo, Snohomish, Stanwood and Sultan.

Citizens living within an incorporated city or town not listed above, please check with your local fire department for current burning ban information.

Please contact our Outdoor Burning Information Hotline at 425-388-3508 for updated information.
