Outdoor Burning Ban Lifted for City of Arlington

Due to anticipated rains and cooler weather conditions, effective Saturday September 15th, 2018 at 8:00 a.m., the burn ban is lifted for all of the unincorporated areas of Snohomish County and the city limits of Arlington. 


Recreational fires are allowed in approved fire pits without a burn permit. However, the fire pit must be constructed of a noncombustible material such as concrete or metal and shall be a minimum of 15 feet from structures. A recreational fire by definition is a cooking fire or campfire using charcoal or firewood.  These fires may not be greater than three feet in diameter and/or two feet in height. Water must also be immediately available.

Please note: Garbage, household trash, lumber, building construction waste, or demolition debris may not be burned.


We continue to ask you to use caution at this time of year, and if you have any additional questions please contact us at 360-403-3600. Please contact the Snohomish County Outdoor Burning Information Hotline at 425- 388-3508 for updated information.
