Burn Risk Level Changed to Moderate

Posted September 13, 2018 at 5:38 am by

The recent rains have result­ed in San Juan Coun­ty mov­ing the fire risk lev­el to Mod­er­ate. This does not change the sta­tus of burn­ing in the coun­ty, it is mere­ly a risk lev­el mod­i­fi­ca­tion that reflects fuel mois­ture lev­els rising. 

Camp­fires remain allowed in San Juan County. 

Res­i­den­tial burn­ing remains closed until the expect­ed open­ing date of Octo­ber 1st with a permit.

The Wash­ing­ton Depart­ment of Nat­ur­al Resources is also down­grad­ing the risk on DNR pro­tect­ed lands at this time.
