The Clallam County Burn Restrictions will take effect July 1, 2024, and run through October 1, 2024, 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.


Recreational fires are limited to 3-feet in diameter and 2-feet in height.  Fires for debris disposal are not legal under any circumstances and are not considered recreational.

If conditions arise the restrictions may be upgraded to a HIGH FIRE DANGER which will prohibit all outdoor burning including recreational fires. The exception is within the Olympic National Park and other controlled campgrounds.
