The fire must be:

1. Attended at all times

2. Is no larger than 3 feet by 3 feet and no taller than 2 feet

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 July 6, 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.

3. The use of gas and propane self-contained stoves and barbecues are allowed.
