Outdoor Burning Ban Announced in Snohomish County

Everett, Snohomish County - Due to high fire danger and expected hot and dry weather conditions, the Snohomish County Fire Marshal has announced an outdoor burning ban for the unincorporated areas of Snohomish County that will go into effect Wednesday, July 22, 2020 at 8:00 a.m.

This restriction bans outdoor burning, except for recreational fires. 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).

This burn ban will be in effect until further notice. If you live in Arlington, Brier, Darrington Edmonds, Everett, Granite Falls, Gold Bar, Index, Lynnwood, Marysville, Mill Creek, Mountlake Terrace, Monroe, Mukilteo, Snohomish, Stanwood or Sultan, please note that they are also participating in this burn ban, and these restrictions will apply within their incorporated boundaries as well. For those residents living within the boundaries of another city or town not listed above, please check with your local fire department for current burning ban information.

All outdoor burn permits, including permits issued by PSCAA (Puget Sound Clean Air Agency) for agricultural burning, are suspended until this ban is lifted. This ban will remain in effect until there is a sustained period of rainfall and the fire risk returns to low.

With the continuing dry weather conditions, we urge the public to use great caution before lighting any recreational fires, since wildfires are a significant risk across the region. If you have any doubts about safety, please don’t burn.

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