Effective 12:01 AM October 1, 2016, the ban on backyard burning is lifted.
All residential outdoor burning requires a permit. These permits are free, and may be picked up from the fire station in Ocean Park, Pioneer Market, Jack’s Country Store, and the Surfside Homeowners Association Office.
Fires must be no larger than 4 feet in diameter, and made of only natural vegetation. Larger burn piles must be inspected before a permit is issued. Burning barrels are not allowed in the State of Washington. Barbeques and campfires made with charcoal briquettes or seasoned firewood do not require a permit. Fires on the beach are also allowed, 100 feet west of the dune line.
