Can I Burn?

The type of natural vegetation you wish to burn and where you live determines whether or not you can burn and what rules apply. The only material that may be burned in Washington state is natural vegetation, and only under specific program requirements. Three types of outdoor burning are allowed: (1) residental yard and garden debris, (2) silvicultural (forest) debris, and (3) recreational fires. SCFD8, together with our partners at Spokane Regional Clear Air Agency, and Washington Department of Natural Resource, have created this informative Can I Burn video to help you determine if and what you may burn.
