Skagit County lifts outdoor burn ban for all unincorporated areas beginning September, 20.

Effective September 20, 2021 and until further notice, residential yard and land-clearing fires are once again permitted in areas within unincorporated Skagit County.

Within unincorporated Skagit County, burn permits are required for piles exceeding 4 feet by 4 feet. Burn permit requests may be submitted by phone at 360-416-1840, and will be processed in the order that they are received.

Residential yard and land-clearing fires may contain only natural vegetation (leaves, grass, and tree trimmings).

Garbage, household trash, lumber, building construction waste, or demolition debris may not be burned.

Please burn responsibly. Remember: smoke, odor, or ash that unreasonably interferes with the use and enjoyment of neighboring properties is prohibited.

If your property is within an incorporated city or town, or within an urban growth area, please contact your local fire department for burn restriction information. If you have questions about open burning in Skagit County, please contact the Skagit County Fire Marshal’s Office at (360) 416-1840 or visit our Outdoor Burning webpage at http://www.skagitcounty.net/firemarshal
