Due to current and forecasted dry weather conditions, the Snohomish County Fire Marshal announced a Stage 1 outdoor burning ban that includes Marysville and the unincorporated areas of Snohomish County effective at 8 a.m. Friday, June 9, 2023.
During this restriction, all outdoor residential burning is bannded, except for recreational and cooking fires. Charcoal and gas grills are ok to use.
This ban will remain in effect until we experience a sustained period of rainfall and the fire risks returns to low.
In the event of a “Red Flag Warning,” all outdoor burning shall be prohibited immediately, including recreational fires, without further notice. A Red Flag Warning is issued by the National Weather Service and means high fire danger with increased probability of a quickly spreading vegetation fire in the area within 24 hours.
With the continuing dry weather conditions, we urge everyone to use extreme caution before burning at all, including recreational fires.
If you have any doubts about safety, please don’t burn.
