Our area is usually at Level 1 from June 1st until October 1st. The following is off the Chelan County Website.
Level 1 Area Restrictions: Any open burning, outdoor fires, and use or operation of any equipment or open flame device liable to start fires; and no motorized vehicles allowed off the road; and prohibits the use of fireworks.
(1) Level 1 area activity restrictions include:
(A) No fireworks;
(B) No open flames devices;
(C) No motor vehicles off the roadway;
(D) No outdoor fires except for recreational/home campfire rings installed in accordance with the Chelan County fire advisory board guidelines. “Campfire enclosure” is an outdoor fire burning materials other than rubbish where the fuel being burned is contained within a metal (minimum ten gauge) ring or other approved noncombustible material, not more than thirty-six inches in diameter and not more than seven inches in height above grade and not more than sixteen inches in depth, set in cement (four inches thick) and having all combustible material removed down to mineral soil, and no less than one and one-half feet from the perimeter of the fire ring and filled in with gravel or rock. Fuel for the recreational/home campfire cannot extend above the edge of the campfire enclosure or ring.
To me this means if you can see a campfire burning from down the street it may be an illegal burn. Please call 509-663-9911 and ask for someone from the fire department to respond.
UPDATE JULY 2, 2013 Campfires are only legal in organized campgrounds.
