Clallam County enacts Fire Safety Burn Ban effective July 1, 2019

The Clallam County ANNUAL Fire Safety Burn Ban will take effect July 1, 2019, and run through October 1, 2019, unless conditions warrant a longer closure.

The Burn Restriction applies to all outdoor burning except recreational fires used for pleasure, religious, ceremonial, warmth, cooking or similar purposes. Recreational fires are permitted unless further banned by extreme weather conditions.

Note: Recreational fires are limited to 3-feet in diameter and 2-feet in height. Fires for debris disposal are not legal under any circumstances and are not considered recreational.

If conditions arise the restrictions may be upgraded to a HIGH FIRE DANGER, this will prohibit all outdoor burning which includes recreational fires. The exception is within the Olympic National Park and other controlled campgrounds.
