Mason County Extends Fire-Safety Burn Ban to include Recreational Fires

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 restriction on outdoor burning to all lands regulated by Mason County.

This burn ban applies to all forms of outdoor burning, including land clearing burning, yard debris burning, and recreational fires.

The use of charcoal briquettes, gas and propane barbeques will continue to be allowed under the ban.

Lands protected by the 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 or call the DNR South Puget Sound Region at 360-825-1631.
