Open Burning
Spokane County Fire District #3 does not regulate open burning of any type. The Fire District’s interest lies with fire safety. If fires are safe, meaning they will not escape and spread, the district is comfortable with open burning as long as they are aware that the burning is occurring. Burning regulations and enforcement of these regulations are the statutory authority and responsibility of Spokane County Department Building and Safety, Spokane Regional Clean Air Agency or the Washington State Department of Natural Resources depending on what type of material is being burned.

During periods of extreme fire danger, rules and limitation information should be obtained from:

Spokane County Department of Building and Planning
