A county-wide burn ban is in effect including a ban on recreational fires. Cooking on a gas grill is allowed, charcoal is not. This ban extends to all State campgrounds and lands controlled and patrolled by the Department of Natural Resources. Questions regarding the ban can be directed to the County Fire Marshal at 360-417-2380. The ban will extend until October 1 or later if conditions warrant. No burning permits will be issued until the ban is lifted in the fall.
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a site visit to issue this type of permit.
