On August 3, 2017 the City of Battle Ground, unincorporated Clark County, and other neighboring jurisdictions called for an immediate recreational burn ban, prohibiting all recreational fires. Out of extreme caution, we want to re-post the notification:

conditions, Battle Ground Fire Marshal Chris Drone has issued a total burning
ban on recreational fires within the city of Battle Ground, effective
immediately. The ban is also in effect in unincorporated Clark County and
All outdoor burning, including recreational fires, are
prohibited within the city limits beginning immediately. The need for the ban
is based on weather conditions and community fire safety needs. It will remain in effect until weather and fire danger
Recreational fires, campfires and fires in outdoor
fireplaces or chimney-type devices are not allowed during this recreational
burning ban. Cooking outdoors in an approved propane or charcoal barbecue is
allowed during this burning ban.
The recreational burning ban will remain in effect
until further notice. Updated information will be posted to the city’s website
