Fire Danger and Outdoor Burning
This site provides current information about wildfire danger in Washington, as well as restrictions applying to outdoor burning conducted on DNR-protected forestlands throughout Washington.
Click on your county for fire danger and burning restrictions for DNR-regulated outdoor burning.
Listed burning restrictions become a requirement of your DNR burn permit and also apply to DNR rule burning (WAC 332-24-205) that does not require a permit. Always contact your local fire and air quality authorities before lighting any outdoor fire.
