The Mason County Community Development Director, as acting Fire Marshal, and in partnership with the Mason County Fire Chiefs’ Association, has determined that current weather conditions within Mason County, the near term forecast, and the recent “fall like weather” we have been having allows Mason County to lift the burn ban currently in effect.
Note that Cities and Urban Growth Areas (UGAs), including Port Angeles, Sequim, Carlsborg, Forks, Joyce, Clallam Bay, and Sekiu, are restricted from outdoor burning, through Washington State law.
Outside the cities and UGAs, contact your local Fire District for burning regulations and permit
