Effective Immediately, the County-Wide burn ban has been upgraded, prohibiting recreational fires except within the Olympic National Park and other controlled campgrounds. All fires are banned from lands and campgrounds under the jurisdiction of Department of Natural Resources including campfires (charcoal briquettes also prohibited).
The Clallam County Burn Ban will take effect July 1, 2014 and run through October 1, 2014 unless conditions warrant further restrictions.
The burn ban applies to all outdoor burning with the exception of recreational cooking fires. Recreational fires are permitted unless further banned by extreme conditions.
Recreational fires are limited to a 3 feet diameter by 2 feet high fire. Fires for debris disposal are not legal under any circumstances and are not considered recreational.
If conditions arise, the restrictions may be upgraded to high fire danger, which will prohibit all outdoor burning including recreational fires.
Changes to the burn ban will be posted here. You may also contact the District office if you have questions. We will begin issuing burn permits for residential burning when the burn ban is lifted.
