1. Attended at all times

3. A charged hose or five gallons of water is present along with a shovel and

4. There is a fire break/non-combustible surface of at least three feet around the fire.

In the event that a fire escapes, the property owner is responsible for any and all fire suppression costs.

Effective June 7, the following burning controls were implemented in Pend Oreille County:

1. All outdoor burning is banned.

2. Recreational fires in approved fire pits are allowed provided that all of the above conditions are met.
