Current Burning Conditions


Outdoor Burning

Local fire officials issue outdoor burn restrictions during fire safety season. When they issue and lift their restrictions and notify us of such action, we will update this page and send out a notice to the burn restrictions email listserv subscribers.

Air quality conditions can change, prompting restrictions on wood heating and outdoor burning. Be sure to check current conditions before burning.

10/12/18 - From the National Weather Service, Spokane -- Strong high pressure is expected to develop over the northwest U.S. this weekend and continue all next week. This will create an extended period of poor ventilation.
