Pacific County has lifted the Burn Ban in unincorporated areas. Those who are not in the City Limits are now allowed to have Residential Fires.
ORCCA Defines Residential Burning:
Residential burning is the outdoor burning of leaves, clippings, prunings and other yard and gardening refuse originating on the maintained area of residential property (e.g. lands immediately adjacent and in close proximity to a human dwelling) and burned on such lands by the property owner and/or other responsible person.
Citizens who are in the City Limits are allowed to have Recreational Fires.
ORCCA Defines Recreational
Recreational fires are camp fires and cooking fires, using dry, seasoned firewood in designated areas or on private property. Fires used for disposal purposes are not recreational fires.
If you have questions regarding outdoor burning you can contact the Olympic Region Clean Air Authority at 800 422-5623, www.orcaa.org.
The Raymond Fire Department asks that you please be safe when burning and be conscious that even though you may be burning on your own property, your outdoor fire can affect others, especially those who suffer from chronic illnesses.
BE SMART and BE SAFE!
