Snohomish County under burn ban SNOHOMISH COUNTY — A burn ban for unincorporated Snohomish County has been issued by the Snohomish County Fire Marshal’s Office until the area receives a period of sufficient rainfall. Recreational fires of no more than three feet in diameter and two feet high for cooking or for pleasure are still allowed. Recreational fires must be contained in a fire pit that has been cleared of all combustible material within a 10-foot radius and must be monitored at all times.
