Burn ban in effect June 1 to September 30
All Residential and Commercial burn permits expired as of the end of May.
Recreational fires (two feet in diameter or less) are still allowed as long as they’re contained within a suitable fire ring.
The burning restrictions are in effect through September 30.
As things dry out, please remember to be very cautious with any open flames. Always make sure that a recreational fire is completely extinguished before leaving it unattended. As Smokey Bear says: "If it's too hot to touch, it's too hot to leave".
The San Juan County Fire Marshal’s Office is a cooperative effort of the fire districts on Orcas, San Juan, Lopez and Shaw Islands, along with San Juan County.
