I will be lifting the burn ban for Point Roberts on Friday, September 29 at 0800. All burn types will be allowed at this time including recreational, residential and land clearing. Permits are required for all burning here in Point Roberts. You can obtain a permit for your need at the fire hall located at 2030 Benson Road. Best times for obtaining a permit are during the weekend as the station is staffed during this time. Please knock loudly! We apologize if we are not available when you come by.

No trash, roofing, dimensional lumber, construction materials or any type of building materials shall be burned.

Natural vegetation, charcoal or propane fires only.

Please remember as the burn ban is lifted:

  • Use extreme caution! Vegetation is still recovering from the long stretch of dry weather and is susceptible to fire spread.
  • Violations of these burn restrictions can result in a minimum $250.00 fine. In addition, if you have an illegal fire that escapes or needs to be extinguished by the fire department, you may be held financially responsible for fire suppression costs and may be criminally charged for Reckless Burning.

We will be sending those burning illegally and with no regard for the safety of the community to Northwest Clean Air Agency for follow-up and the potential of increased fines.

If you have any questions, please contact me. Burn safe and considerately!
