BURN BAN ISSUED: Snohomish County Fire Marshal has issued a burn ban for 8am Friday, June 9, due to current and forecasted dry weather conditions. The ban includes the City of Everett, WA and unincorporated Snohomish County.
🟢Under this ban, recreational fires are ok.
🟢Charcoal and gas grills are also ok.
❌All other outdoor burning is banned.
In general, the City of Everett is a permanent no-burn area with the exception of recreational fires. The use of a burn barrel and burning garbage is also not permitted.
Recreational fires are less than three feet in diameter and two feet high and are intended for cooking or pleasure within an approved fire pit. Here are the rules if you do have a recreational fire:
✅Recreational fires shall 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.
✅Fires must be at least 25 feet from any structure or combustible material (including decks, fencing, sheds, siding, etc.).
✅Portable outdoor fireplaces shall be used in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and shall not be operated within 15 feet of a structure or combustible material.
✅Conditions that could cause a fire to spread within 25 feet of a structure shall be eliminated prior to ignition.
We urge the public to use great caution before lighting any recreational fires since wildfires are a significant risk across the region.
