Due to the warm weather conditions ahead and decreasing fuel moisture levels, the Whatcom County Fire Marshal’s Office will be enacting restrictions on all open burning in unincorporated Whatcom County starting at 8:00 AM on Friday, July 7th, 2017.
All land clearing and yard debris burning must be discontinued at that time.
Recreational fires will still be allowed in designated campgrounds and on improved properties with the landowner’s permission. Recreational fires are fires that are less than 3 feet in diameter, burning only seasoned firewood or charcoal, and are built in an approved fire enclosure. To find out the requirements for an approved enclosure please call the burn ban information line at (360) 778-5903.
