King County Fire Chiefs Terminate Stage 2 Burn Ban-Effective 12:00 Today

Effective today, August 31 at 1200 (noon), The King County Fire Chief’s Association in coordination with the King County Fire Marshals are terminating the Stage 2 Burn Ban. This will allow burning of small recreational fires to resume. Recent cooler weather, increased humidity, and anticipated precipitation have allowed wildland fuels to recover moisture, and the local wildland fire danger has reduced to a level where it is safe to resume small recreational fires. The Stage I Burn Ban (restrictions), issued in July which covers all other outdoor burning, will remain in effect until further notice.
