What are the current burn regulations?

Within the City of Anacortes, you may burn only recreational fires using firewood. You will need a permit issued by the Fire Department. Firewood is defined as natural vegetation no less than two inches in diameter. The fire needs to be contained in an open fire pit or approved wood burning BBQ no larger than two by three feet (2 feet by 3 feet). Permits issued are valid for an entire year from the date issued, but are subject to suspension during burn bans. Burn permits can be obtained in person during regular business hours at the main fire station on 13th Street or you may complete a permit application online. There is no charge for burn permits.  Charcoal and propane BBQs do not require a permit. For more information, please call the Fire Department at 360-293-1925.
