05/30/2018: "Burning Extented To June 15"

residential burn permits will expire at noon on June 15th. Residential burning will be closing two weeks later than the scheduled date of May 31st. Residential burn permits are issued for the burning of brush and limbs in areas of the islands that are not within Urban Growth Areas (UGA.)

Campfires will continue to be allowed in contained fire pits that are no larger than 2’ by 2’ in size, burning fire wood only, not yard waste.

Burning during June will be limited to the hours of sunrise until noon daily and the current fire risk level for the county is Moderate.

The Fire Marshal’s Office would like to remind residents of San Juan County that residential burn piles are no larger than 10’ in diameter and need to be monitored at all times they are burning. A charged hose should be present if available as well as a shovel.

Residential permits are not appropriate for land clearing operations, land clearing operations require a commercial permit and may also require permits from the Department of Natural Resources.

The Fire Marshal’s Office also encourages residents to evaluate whether or not burning during June is necessary and explore the options of chipping yard waste or abstaining from burning until Fall when Residential burning re-opens.
