Washington State Burn Ban Extended Until Mid October
OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Gov. Chris Gregoire has extended her emergency burn ban to include all counties in Washington state.
No outdoor burning is allowed in the state through midnight, Oct. 15.
The governor says the reason for the extended ban is the state's long stretch of warm dry weather, which has elevated fire danger across Washington.
The burn ban prohibits all outdoor burning, including but not limited to campfires, bonfires, yard debris clean-up, weed abatement, agriculture-related burning and ignition of fireworks.
