Current Burning Conditions
Air Quality burn bans
*Please note: Outdoor burning for disposal purposes is not allowed in most areas of Spokane County. Recreational fires are okay as long as requirements are followed.
When fine particles of smoke are on the rise and stagnant weather conditions prevail, Spokane Clean Air can issue a temporary ban on the use of wood burning devices, as well as outdoor burning. This strategy is to prevent air quality from exceeding federal, health-based standards.
Fire Danger burn bans
Fire Protection Agencies and local officials may temporarily restrict outdoor burning during fire hazard conditions. Restrictions are typically July-September. Spokane Clean Air will relay information here as it is provided to us by state and local officials.
