Burn Restrictions Effective Thursday

Mason County is restricting outdoor burning beginning at 12:01 AM Thursday, July 16, 2020. The restriction will be in effect until further notice.

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 restriction applies to OUTDOOR BURNING, including land clearing and yard debris but does allow recreational fires in conforming fire pits. The use of charcoal briquettes, gas and propane barbecues will continue to be allowed under the restriction.

Lands protected by 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 www.dnr.wa.gov or call the DNR South Puget Sound Region at (360) 825-1631.
