COUNTY-WIDE OUTDOOR BURN RESTRICTIONS

EFFECTIVE 0:01 AM –Tuesday, September 22, 2020, UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

The Mason County Community Development Director, as acting Fire Marshal, and in partnership with the Mason County Fire Chiefs’ Association, has determined that current weather conditions within Mason County have created substantial fire dangers and that there is a need to enact a burn ban on outdoor burning to all lands regulated by Mason County. This burn ban applies to  all OUTDOOR BURNING, including land clearing and yard debris. Recently received moisture allows a relaxation regarding recreational fires. This restriction allows recreational fires in conforming fire pits. The use of charcoal briquettes, gas and propane barbeques will continue to be allowed under the restrictions.

Follow along as Emergency Prevention Specialist Lacey Newman explains the current burn ban:

*Lands protected by Department of Natural Resources (DNR) may have different restrictions.  To find out more information or determine if you are in a Department of Natural Resources area visit www.dnr.wa.gov or call the DNR South Puget Sound Region at 360-825-1631.
