As of September 29, 2023 there are NO burn bans in Kitsap County.

The Kitsap County Fire Marshals office lifts the Stage 1 burn ban effective Friday, September 29, 2023. Outdoor burning may resume subject to normal area limitations and permitting requirements. “Recent fall rainfall has reduced the fire hazard locally,” says David Lynam, the County’s Fire Marshal, “A good deal of moisture has reduced the fire hazard to once again allow outdoor burning.”
