As of October 25, 2022 there are NO burn bans in Kitsap County.

All rules governing outdoor burning still apply:

  • A burning permit is required for all general outdoor burning.
  • Burning permits may be obtained online from your local fire district.
  • Burning is allowed only during daylight hours and must be attended at all times.
  • Fires must be limited to no more than ten by ten in size, must be at least fifty feet from a structure, and a water supply and tools to control the fire must be available at all times.
  • General outdoor burning is prohibited within city limits.

Those who have recreational fires are asked to always have a sufficient water source handy to put the fire out. Never leave any fire unattended as even small recreational fires can spread to surrounding areas.
