There is a permanent burn ban within the City of Oak Harbor and its urban growth areas (UGAs). This means that residential burning of yard, garden and land clearing debris is illegal.
Note: Small recreational fires, burning firewood, in approved fire pits, are allowed as long as they do not negatively impact neighboring properties.
If you suspect that someone is burning illegally, you can call the non-emergency dispatch number: 360-679-9567. Contact 911 immediately if there is excessive smoke or you suspect the fire may be out of control.
