Current Burning Conditions
A Stage 1 Burn Restriction is in place as of Sunday, Nov. 18, at 10 am and until further notice.
The restrictions are due to stagnant weather patterns over the next several days, putting residents at risk for unhealthy levels of air pollution.
Under a Stage 1 ban:
* The use of uncertified wood stoves, fireplaces, inserts, and other uncertified wood burning devices is prohibited in the Spokane County Smoke Control Zone, unless they are a home's only adequate source of heat (exemptions required.)
* All outdoor burning countywide is banned.

Spokane Clean Air may restrict outdoor burning during periods of poor air quality (see notice above).
In addition, local fire officials issue outdoor burn restrictions during fire safety season. When restrictions are issued and lifted we will update this page and send out a notice to the burn restrictions email listserv subscribers.
