Temporary Burn Ban Restrictions

Effective immediately, the City of Bremerton Fire Marshal is announcing burn restrictions in accordance with Governor Inslee’s statewide temporary burn ban. The Governor announced a ban on outdoor burning except under some circumstances at private residences.

The City of Bremerton already has in place a burn ban with outdoor burning prohibited within city limits for residential yard debris clean-up, trash disposal, land clearing, weed abatement, and agricultural burning.

In response to the Governor’s order, the City of Bremerton has also temporarily prohibited wood burning in outdoor firepits, campfires, and bonfires, including on private property. The temporary ban will remain in effect until lifted.

Propane and natural gas free-standing barbeques, including charcoal and pellet grills, are permitted at private residences in the City of Bremerton under the Governor’s proclamation. Propane and natural gas firepits are also allowed in the City. Please remember to stay 15 feet from combustible materials with the area cleared of grass and yard debris. They should also be used on non-flammable, hard surfaces.

Bremerton’s temporary burn ban is expected to remain in effect through early fall and may be extended if conditions warrant.
