County burn ban in effect until Sept. 30

A countywide fire safety burn ban has been declared by the King County Fire Marshal in coordination with the King County Fire Chiefs’ Association. This ban is prompted by ground conditions and forecasts calling for continued dry weather. It will be in effect until Sept. 30.

This Phase 1 burn ban applies to all outdoor burning except for small recreational fires in established fire pits at approved camp grounds or private property with the owner’s permission and strict conditions.
