Old Fire Station 168
The old fire station 168 on Mountain View Road NE has been sold. This will not impact response or service.
The Board of Commissioners have accepted an offer for the property located at 18005 Mountain View Rd NE. The property will be transferred shortly, and you may notice our personnel moving equipment from the building. As this property has served as a storage facility, the sale of the property will in no way impact our service delivery. In fact, the new station on Cherry Valley Rd has been serving the area since its opening in December 2020.
We are governed by State laws (i.e. Gifting of Funds, etc.) which limits our property sale options. This creates situations where some may feel their voices were not heard. Please know that this decision was made for what is best for the District taxpayers we proudly serve.
We thank you for your continued support.
BURN BAN IN EFFECT
The seasonal burn ban took effect at 11:59pm on Sunday July 3rd.
No burning of yard debris is allowed during the ban.
A dry and unstable air mass with warm temperatures
can contribute to active fire behavior. Easterly winds during this time frame may aid in drying conditions even further. In western Washington, significant growth on existing fires takes place under such conditions. If a fire were to begin, air quality may diminish in the surrounding area.

Amid high temperatures and dry conditions, King County Fire Marshal issues Stage 2 burn ban prohibiting outdoor recreational fires
King County Fire Marshal Chris Ricketts has issued a Stage 2 burn ban for unincorporated King County, prohibiting all outdoor recreational fires. Outdoor cooking and heating appliances are restricted to approved manufactured gas and charcoal units only.
The Stage 2 burn ban goes into effect immediately for unincorporated King County, which was already in a Stage 1 burn ban. King County’s ban is in coordination with the King County Fire Chiefs Association and Fire Marshals, which extends the ban into cities.
The updated ban takes effect as the National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning for the region. This means critical fire weather conditions are present and any fires that develop will likely spread quickly.
During a Stage 2 burn ban, burning residential debris is prohibited, as is any other outdoor fire such as a backyard fire pit or campfire (using firewood or charcoal). Under the ban, any person with a recreational fire who fails to take immediate action to extinguish or discontinue it when ordered or notified to do so can be charged with a misdemeanor.
