Burn ban lifted in Kitsap County

PORT ORCHARD — Perhaps for the final time this year, the phase one burn ban in Kitsap County has been lifted.

County Fire Marshal David Lynam announced the revision on Oct. 14.

Outdoor burning may resume subject to the normal limitations and permitting requirements, Lynam said in a news release. All land-clearing fires are prohibited throughout the county. All outdoor burning except for small recreational fires in approved appliances and locations requires a burning permit. Those with questions should contact their local fire department.

“Fire conditions are much improved,” Lynam noted. “That said, our local fire crews still respond to brush fires every day, so if you do burn, be diligent in following all of the safety precautions listed in your permit.”
