Skagit County lifts outdoor burn ban for all unincorporated areas beginning October 26, 2022.
Effective October 26, 2022, and until further notice, residential yard and land-clearing fires are 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 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.
