Upgrade of County-Wide Burn Ban



          Burn Restrictions have been modified in unincorporated Clallam County to a FULL BURN BAN


        Due to atmospheric conditions of reduced moisture levels, low humidity and warmer weather, combined with the reduced availability of fire-fighting resources the Clallam County Burn Ban is being modified to include all campgrounds within unincorporated Clallam County (County controlled campgrounds are included in the burn ban).  This modification prohibits all outdoor burning.  Outdoor burning includes, campfires, bonfires, briquette BBQ’s, residential yard debris clean-up, trash disposal, land clearing, weed abatement and agricultural burning activity.  Propane/gas appliances are permitted provided the use is over a non-flammable surface and at least 5 feet from flammable vegetation.  The exception to this modification is those campgrounds within the Olympic National Park.

The Clallam County Fire Marshal’s office works closely with local fire districts and local fire departments, and strongly urges all county residents and property owners to be attentive to the condition of their properties through proactive fire prevention measures.

Maintaining a 30-foot defensible space around structures will help aid fire fighters by creating a zone of protection around your personal property.

You can find more information concerning Defensible Space on the Clallam County website


Urban Growth Areas of Clallam County

Burning is prohibited in the urban growth areas of Clallam County. This is regulated by the State of Washington, not local agencies. We often receive questions on where burning is prohibited. The Olympic Region Clean Air Agency (ORCAA) has developed a map that shows where burning is prohibited.

A link to the ORCAA website is here.


Commercial and Large-Pile Burn Permits

Permits in this category are issued to commercial users that are clearing large areas of land and burning, or to citizens that have yard waste larger than a single 4 foot X 4 foot X 3 pile foot allowed under the no-fee residential permit.

These permits are issued on a case-by-case basis and require a site visit. The cost is $100.00 payable to Clallam County Fire District No. 2. Please call 360-417-4790 or email to arrange a site visit to issue this type of permit.
