Outdoor Burning

Different types of burn bans:


Fire Safety burn bans may be issued for safety during hot and/or dry conditions. The Marysville Fire District follows fire safety bans issued by the Snohomish County Fire Marshal. If a burn ban is issued in Snohomish County, that ban is effective within the City of Marysville and the entire Marysville Fire District service area.


Air Quality burn bans are issued by the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency to protect air quality. These bans are usually enacted during cooler months when the air is stagnant but can also be issued due to smoky conditions during warmer seasons. Find more information on what types of burning are limited during an air quality burn ban here.


DNR burn bans are issued by the Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to reduce human-caused wildfires during extremely hot and dry conditions. When a burn restriction is in place, outdoor fires are prohibited on all state, county, city and private land under DNR fire protection.
