San Juan County's Fire Danger Level Increases to MODERATE

Fire Marshal News

SAN JUAN COUNTY, WA. June 6, 2023 – Effective Monday June 5, 2023, San Juan County, WA fire danger level increases to MODERATE as fuels continue to dry out. 

Moderate fire danger means that all fine dead fuels like dried grasses ignite readily, and fires start easily. 

Residents and visitors alike need to be especially vigilant this fire season and firefighters appreciate the public taking extra care with prevention. 

  • Check trailer chains so that they are not dragging and throwing sparks into roadside grasses. 
  • Become familiar with the campfire regulations wherever you are camping this summer. 
  • Never leave a campfire unattended and always extinguish it before leaving. 

Reminder, all permitted burning in San Juan County is closed for the summer season as of June 1st, 2023. 

For more information on burning in San Juan County, visit the Fire Marshal’s website at
