STAGE 2 BURN BAN LIFTED, STAGE 1 BURN BAN STILL IN EFFECT
Effectively immediately, the King County Fire Chief’s Association is terminating the Stage 2 (Complete) Burn Ban. This allows burning of small recreational fires to resume as described below. Check with your local jurisdiction for additional information.
Recent precipitation and cooler weather have allowed wildland fuels to recover moisture, and the local wildland fire danger has reduced to a level where it is safe to resume small recreational fires. The Stage I burn ban, issued on June 24th and covering all other outdoor burning, will remain in effect until further notice. Additionally this modification to the current burn ban status does not supersede the Washington State Governor’s Proclamation 21-10 which includes additional restrictions on State or publicly owned properties.
The King County Fire Chiefs, Fire Marshals and local jurisdictions encourage all citizens to know your local requirements for outdoor burning and maintain a fire safe environment. If you have any questions, please contact your local Fire Department.
