Currently there is no burn ban in effect for unincorporated Whatcom County, which includes South Whatcom Fire Authority’s jurisdiction.

There are, however, permanent burn bans in place for the Urban Growth Areas (UGAs) of Bellingham that include areas of Geneva and Yew Street Rd.  Please visit the Whatcom County Fire Marshal’s Office website for information on outdoor burning requirements and how to obtain a burn permit.  Also, make sure to always call the Outdoor Burning Information Line (360-778-5903) for up-to-date information about burn bans and regulations.
