A county-wide burn ban goes into effect for unincorporated areas on Thursday, July 17, due to the high fire danger and dry weather. A spokesman for the Anacortes Fire Department says the burn ban applies in the City of Anacortes, too.

During the burn restriction no burning is allowed with the exception of barbequing with briquettes and propane only; and approved camp fire pits in campgrounds.  These restrictions will remain in effect until further notice. 

All outdoor burning permits for the unincorporated areas of Skagit County are suspended at this time. It is never legal to burn trash or garbage.

This decision has been made in cooperation with the Skagit County Board of Commissioners, Washington State Department of Natural Resources, local fire districts and Northwest Clean Air Agency.
