Burn Ban Information
The Burn Ban Information hotline phone number is 676-6934.
Recreational fires are permitted in the City of Lynden providing you have a permit. These permits are issued at the fire station on 4th Street during normal business hours. The permits are free of charge and are valid for the calendar year.
Recreational fires are for enjoying roasted marshmellows and relaxing. Only clean dry wood may be used. Absolutely no waste may be burned. Fires must be in a pit. Never place your fire pit near a structure and always keep your charged garden hose nearby while enjoying your fire.
Please refrain from having a recreational fire when the weather is dry and/or windy. Please be considerate of your neighbors. The Fire Department often receives calls from neighbors who are bothered by the smoke from these fires. We ask that you use good judgement regarding the wind causing the smoke to waft towards open windows of other homes.
When the County inacts a burn ban, the ban does not apply to recreational fires however consideration of others does apply.
