Burn ban in effect July 1

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.

Contact your local fire district for more information or visit www.clallam.net.
