However, if it does exceed 2ft x 3ft, you may need a permit from both the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency, and the Seattle Fire Department. Some permit requirements may also change based on the type of fuel connection you are using,  Solus firepits are available as both portable and fixed fuel connection.
