Burn Bans & Recreational Fires

For current burn ban status, check Puget Sound Clean Air Agency. If no burn ban is in effect, the following applies:

Smaller is better 

Fires must not exceed three feet in diameter or two feet in height. Make sure your fire is contained and cannot spread. Burn barrels and bonfires are not permitted.

Fuel it right

Charcoal, dried firewood or manufactured logs only. It is illegal to burn trash and yard waste.

Stay clear of combustibles

Fires must be 25’ from structures and combustible materials.

Stand guard

As long as the fire is burning, someone must be present who is capable of putting it out. Keep a garden hose or extinguisher close by.
