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
How do I obtain an outdoor burning permit?
Outdoor burning permits can be obtained through your local fire district. Please make sure to contact them before you burn. Use the links at the bottom of this page under the Fire Districts list to access information specific to your fire district
