Q:   AM I ALLOWED TO HAVE A FIRE DURING THE  BURN BAN?
A:   Thurston County has a standard county wide burn ban every year beginning July 15 through October 1. which restricts residential burning. 

During this burn ban the following must be adhered to:

  • When the fire danger is at the Medium level, we are restricted from having open recreational fires any larger than 3 ft x 3 ft. Recreational fires include fires used for entertainment and cooking purposes and are made of either charcoal or seasoned firewood. 
  • When the fire danger is at the High level, either small fires only will be permitted in properly constructed fire pits (designs are available at the office) or a TOTAL BURNING BAN will be established within Clearwood. If a TOTAL BURNING BAN is established, no open fires at all will be permitted. You may still cook on propane fueled bbq grills, however all charcoal and wood fires will be restricted. 

PLEASE NOTE: As per our Red Book, Sec G #1, the CCA has long held that, because of the community’s heavy forest and brush cover and close proximity of homes thereto, it’s regulations could be stricter than outside agencies (but not less strict that outside agencies).
