WHAT & WHEN you can burn outside.

Learn WHAT and WHEN you can burn outside on this weeks episode of ”Wednesdays with Wohrle”

Posted by Central Pierce Fire & Rescue on Tuesday, May 5, 2020

Check out this episode of "Wednesdays with Wohrle" from Central Pierce Fire & Rescue with some helpful tips on outdoor burning! Remember, if you are planning on burning outdoors other than a standard recreational fire, contact your local fire district before you burn, as you may need to obtain a burn permit. If you are going to have a recreational fire, make sure to follow the guidelines:

  • Don’t burn outdoor debris, construction debris, or garbage
  • Only burn dry season firewood, manufactured logs, or charcoal
  • Make sure the fire is 3 ft wide by 2 ft tall maximum, located in a designated fire pit, and at least 25 ft from any structure
  • Make sure someone is tending the fire at all times, and has a way to extinguish it located near them
  • If the fire becomes a nuisance with a neighbor who has health problems, you then need to put the fire out
