Anacortes Fire Department “One Team ALWAYS There For You”
For Immediate Release
DATE: September 13, 2021
Subject: Burn Restrictions Lifted
Due to increased fuel moistures in Western Washington, the Skagit County Fire Marshal has rescinded the total burn ban and implemented a modified burn ban to allow recreational fires. The City of Anacortes has also rescinded the burn ban within its City Limits and will allow recreational fires fueled with firewood or charcoal briquettes, provided a valid recreational burn permit has been
obtained. The burning of yard debris, garbage, or other non‐approved materials is prohibited. While fuel moistures have increased, all residents should remain vigilant and burn responsibly.
