Burn Ban Information

There is currently no indoor burn ban in effect for the Puget Sound region. However, there is a permanent ban on outdoor burning in urban growth areas. If you are unsure if you can burn outdoors, contact your local fire officials.

Check weather conditions in your neigborhood before you decide to burn. If it's stagnant outside (little or no wind) consider saving the fire for another night. Remember, the smoke from your chimney stays right where you put it... in your neighborhood.

Call the air quality hotline at 1-800-595-4341 for burn ban status.
