Burn Restrictions Lifted
Due to increased fuel moistures in Western Washington, the Skagit County Fire Marshal has rescinded the total burn ban restriction and implemented a modified burn ban to allow recreational fires.
The City of Anacortes has also rescinded the burn ban within City Limits and will allow recreational fires fueled with firewood or charcoal briquettes provided a valid Recreational Permit has been obtained.
The burning of yard debris, garbage, or other non-approved materials is prohibited. While fuel moistures have increased, all residents should remain vigilant and burn responsibly.
Recreational Fire Permits
As a reminder, a Recreational Burn Permit is required for all recreational fires within the Anacortes City limits. The burning of yard debris, garbage, or other non-approved materials is prohibited.
Burning of weeds with a propane torch is also prohibited.
