Due to the increase in fuel moisture levels and recent rain, the Whatcom County Fire Marshal’s Office announced today they will lift the burn ban for outdoor burning at 8am Friday, September 14th. This change effects unincorporated areas of Whatcom County.

Fire Marshal’s Office officials remind, that even with the burn ban lifted, all outdoor burning requires a permit, except for legal recreational fires.

  • Verbal burn permits will be available via the Outdoor Burning Information Line at 360-778-5903.
  • Written burn permits for fires larger than 4-foot by 4-foot will be available at the Whatcom County Planning & Development Services Office located at 5280 Northwest Drive.

Fire Districts covering the Lummi Island and Sandy Point areas have not yet announced they will be lifting their current burn bans anytime soon. UPDATE: Sandy Point Fire District 17 announced today all burning restrictions have been lifted.

For areas within the Ferndale city limits, there remains a permanent burn ban that prohibits burning of garbage, yard clippings and other vegetative debris in the city and adjacent urban growth areas.

OUR NEXT AUCTION IS CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

Due to governor Inslees recent Stay at Home act, we can not have our regularly scheduled auction. We will post a new auction list along with a new date once this is lifted. We are sorry but we must play by the rules.
