Outdoor burning is not permitting between July 15 and October 1, when the fire danger level tends to be high.
Recreation fires also banned
Effective immediately, all recreational burning is banned in unincorporated Clark County and within Battle Ground and Yacolt due to extreme fire danger caused by dry conditions, high temperatures and wind.

The recreational burn ban prohibits:
* Outdoor fire pits
* Outdoor fireplaces including those with a chimney
* Portable fireplaces also known as patio fireplaces
Gas and charcoal barbecues and self-contained camp stoves are allowed.
