Outdoor burn ban still in effect

Most outdoor burning remains prohibited with a few exceptions

Gov. Inslee’s emergency proclamation this summer banning outdoor burning remains in effect despite recent precipitation, David Lynam, Kitsap County’s fire marshal, said on Tuesday.

Most outdoor burning remains prohibited with a few exceptions, including the use of charcoal grills over solid surfaces at least five feet from combustible vegetation; campfires in certain state, county or other parks; and in structures including masonry or other noncombustible surfaces or containment.

“The governor’s proclamation preempts our local authority to allow open burning except for a very few exceptions,” Lynam said. “The proclamation prohibiting burning is not likely to be lifted prior to the end of September as originally issued.”
