KING COUNTY, Wash. – Effectively September 30th at 11:59 pm, the King County Fire Chief’s Association in coordination with the King County Fire Marshals is terminating the Stage 1 (restrictions) Burn Ban. The Stage 1 Burn Ban covers both residential and land clearing burning.
Recent precipitation and cooler weather have allowed wildland fuels to recover moisture, and the local wildland fire danger has reduced to a level where it is safe to resume all properly regulated fires. The termination of the Stage 1 Burn Ban allows residential and land clearing burning to resume per your local jurisdiction’s requirements. However, it’s important to note that most municipalities do not allow either residential or land clearing burning year-round and/or require special permits. For this reason, it’s important that all residents know their local requirements for outdoor burning and maintain a fire safe environment.

Please navigate to the Fire Safety page of this website to see the current burn permit.
