The Clallam County burn restrictions will take effect July 1 and run through Oct. 1 unless conditions warrant an earlier closure.
The burn restriction applies to all outdoor burning except recreational cooking fires.
Recreational fires are permitted unless further banned by extreme conditions — they are limited to 3 feet in diameter and 2 feet in height.
Fires for debris disposal are not legal under any circumstance and are not considered recreational.
If conditions arise, the restrictions may be upgraded to a high fire danger; this will prohibit all outdoor burning which includes recreational fires.
The exception is within Olympic National Park and other controlled campgrounds.
