Burn ban ending

 

September 16, 2021



The ban on outdoor burning in Wahkiakum County will end this Friday, according to an announcement from Chuck Beyer, director of Wahkiakum County Public Works.

"All the counties in SW Washington and DNR have decided to lift the ban on October 1, 2021. If something should change we will do public notice," Beyer wrote in a Sept. 17 email

The Washington Department of Natural Resources on Monday lifted the ban on outdoor burning on DNR lands.

"Effective today, Sept. 20, outdoor burning, campfires, the use of charcoal briquettes, and prescribed burns on all forest lands within DNR’s fire protection are permitted once again. The burn ban was initially set to expire on Sept. 30, but diminishing wildfire danger shortened the timeline," the announcement said.
