Burn Ban Extended Through Monday

Dec 27, 2013

The State  Department of Ecology has extended the Stage 1 burn ban in Okanogan and eight other eastern Washington counties.

The ban is now in effect until at least Monday, December 30, at 4:00 pm. 

All outdoor burning – including residential, agricultural and forest burning – is prohibited.

Under a Stage 1 ban the use of uncertified wood-burning devices – including fireplaces, wood stoves and inserts – is prohibited unless they are a home’s only adequate source of heat.

Certified wood-burning devices and pellet stoves are allowed. Ecology recommends burning hot fires using only clean, dry wood.
