OKANOGAN COUNTY, Wash. — Starting on Friday, you will be allowed to burn recreational fires in Okanogan County.

Okanogan County Emergency Management will lift the county’s burn ban on October 7 at 12:01 a.m.

Burn restrictions are still in place through October 15.

Recreational fires are now allowed. This means fires must be contained in a concrete, rock or steel ring that is made from non-combustible material. The ring cannot be longer than three feet in diameter and no less than eight inches in height. Flames cannot be higher than two feet and cannot be conducted within 25 feet of a building or other combustible material. Recreational fires must also be attended at all times.

Burning restrictions mean you are not allowed to burn field, pile, rubbish, rule, slash, yard vegetation or non-emergent agricultural on private lands, including DNR-assisted lands within Okanogan County.
