Fire Danger Burn Restrictions Now in Place
Effective July 16, 2018, outdoor recreational burn restrictions are now in place, due to extreme fire danger caused by hot, dry weather conditions.
This means that citizens residing in the Cities of Liberty Lake, Millwood, Spokane Valley and unincorporated areas of Spokane County must discontinue outdoor recreational fires and open burning until further notice.
Unauthorized fires include:
- All Recreational Fires – any outdoor fire without a chimney such as a backyard fire pit or campfire using chopped firewood or charcoal
- All Open Burning – any open burning of fields and yard waste is prohibited at all times
Any person found with a recreational fire or conducting open burning who fails to take immediate action to extinguish or otherwise discontinue such burning when ordered or notified to do so will be charged with a misdemeanor. (IFC 109; SCC 3.02)
Citizens may continue to use manufactured portable outdoor devices including fireplaces, chimineas, barbeques and patio warmers in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions. Approved fuels such as clean and dry seasoned firewood, charcoal, natural gas or propane gas must be used in appropriate devices.
