Wetter weather sees burn ban lifted

Recent rains and early fall-like weather conditions have lifted a burn ban in unincorporated Kitsap County.

Burning may resume effective immediately, county officials said, but burning activities are still subject to the usual regulations and permitting.

The burn ban had been in effect since July 12.

At that time, fire marshal David Lyman said, “Drying trends and higher temperatures in the weather forecast as well as an increased number of brush fires in recent weeks, particularly from escaped burn piles” were to blame for the burn ban.
