OPEN BURNING SEASON ENDS: BURN PERMITS EXPIRE ON JUNE 30th
Our weather is finally getting better. We’re starting to see the Sun more often. Unfortunately, along with the great weather comes an increased risk of fires.


As the sun starts to dry out our islands after a very wet winter, the time for burn piles has come to an end for this year. All burn permits expire after June 30. Controlled burning should resume next October, depending upon fire risk conditions at that time.

Recreational fires -fires that are two-feet in diameter or less- continue to be allowed. Barbecues and fireplaces are also not effected by the end of the burn permit season.

If you need any further information, contact your local fire district. Or, call the Fire Marshal’s Office at 378-3473. On Orcas Island, you can contact the Deputy Fire Marshal at 376-2331.
