Fidalgo Island Grass Fire

Skagit County District 13 and Department of Natural Resources crews worked to extinguish a grass fire near the Swinomish Casino on Sunday, July 11.

The Skagit County Fire Marshal has partially lifted the total burn ban, allowing for recreational fires after an increase in area fuel moistures.

The City of Anacortes has lifted its ban, allowing for recreational fires with firewood or charcoal briquettes. A recreational burn permit must be obtained, however. The burning of garbage and yard debris continues to be banned.
