Fire District reminder:
new outdoor burning rules
The state of Washington and Puget Sound Clean Air Agency have changed the rules governing outdoor burning which impact the Woodinville Fire & Life Safety District (WFLSD).
The No-Burn Zone has been extended to include all lands west of Avondale and Paradise Lake roads. This means persons living in that area will no longer be able to burn yard debris at any time. Property owners living east of Avondale and Paradise Lake roads will be allowed to burn yard debris only during specified spring and fall "burn seasons."
These seasons are April 1-May 31, and Oct. 1-Nov. 30. Land clear burns are legal only during these specified dates also.
There is no charge for residential burn permits; however, land clear permits cost $150.
Persons who live within an approved burn zone and wish to burn must obtain a written burn permit as well as copies of the rules from WFLSD. Residential burn permits are available at the district office and fire stations, but land clear burn permits must be obtained at district headquarters only.
For additional information, call WFLSD at (425) 483-2131 or Puget Sound Clean Air Agency at 1-800-552-3565. Their Web site is www.pacleanair.org.
