Burn ban now includes no recreational fires
SNOHOMISH COUNTY — Hot, dry conditions mean recreational campfires and fire pits are a no-no.
The county fire marshal enlarged the burn ban Tuesday, Sept. 8.
Non-recreational fires already were under the burn ban.
The only exceptions are cooking on charcoal and gas grills.
Incorporated cities and towns included in this outdoor burning ban are: Arlington, Brier, Darrington Edmonds, Everett, Granite Falls, Gold Bar, Index, Lynnwood, Marysville, Mill Creek, Mountlake Terrace, Monroe, Mukilteo, Snohomish, Stanwood and Sultan.
This ban will remain in effect until there is a sustained period of rainfall and the fire risk returns to low.
To check on the current burn ban status anytime, phone 425-388-3508.
All outdoor burn permits, including permits issued by PSCAA (Puget Sound Clean Air Agency) for agricultural burning, are suspended until this ban is lifted.
