King County Fire Marshals Terminate Burn Ban


KING COUNTY, Wash. – Effective immediately, the King County Fire Chief’s Association, in coordination with the King County Fire Marshals, is terminating the Burn Ban (both Stage 1 and Stage 2). This covers recreational and residential burning.


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 all properly regulated fires. The termination of the Burn Ban allows recreational and residential per your local jurisdiction’s requirements. However, it’s important to note that most municipalities may not allow either recreational or residential burning year-round and/or require special permits. For this reason, citizens are encouraged to know their local requirements for outdoor burning and maintain a fire-safe environment. If you have any questions, please contact your local fire department.
