Burn Ban in effect

Effective midnight Monday, Sept. 13, and until further notice, all

land clearing, residential yard debris fires, burn barrels and recreational

fires are banned in King County.

The King County Fire Marshal's Office has established this burn

ban with the recent onset of warmer, drier weather in the Puget Sound

area. This burn ban is established in coordination with Kitsap, Mason, and

Pierce counties, and the Washington State Department of Natural Resources.

Fires in state and federal campgrounds are still allowed if

maintained in an approved fire pit.

For updates on the burn ban status or for additional details, contact

the King County Fire Marshal's Office at (206) 296-6675.
