Outdoor Burning Information
Burn Restrictions are Implemented
Fire Marshals from Spokane Valley Fire Department (SVFD), City of Spokane Fire Department (SFD), Spokane County, City of Cheney, City of Airway Heights, and City of Deer Park have all enacted the Fire Danger Burn Restriction effective Monday, July 20. With high temperatures in the forecast, all Cities and Fire Agencies want to keep area communities safe from fire risk.
“Burn restrictions are put in place to keep us all safe and healthy,” said Spokane Valley Fire Department Fire Marshal, Greg Rogers. “After a review of the short-range weather forecast and the low humidity for Spokane County and discussions with our area Fire Chief partners, we feel it is prudent to initiate Burn Restrictions for Spokane County until further notice.” Unauthorized open burning and unauthorized recreational fires are restricted until this order is lifted or unless otherwise permitted by law enforcement or authorized agencies. “In addition to causing unhealthy air,” said City of Spokane Fire Marshal, Megan Phillips, “the hot, dry conditions produce increased fire risk and we want to mitigate that risk as much as possible by enacting burn restrictions area wide.”
As a reminder, there may be other burning restrictions in place concerning air quality within the region. For information regarding air quality restrictions, please contact Spokane County Regional Air Agency's burn information hotline:509-477-4710or visit their website.
