Burn ban

Due to the high wildfire hazard conditions experienced this summer and continued lack of sufficient precipitation in the eastern parts of the county, Klickitat County is extending the ban on outdoor burning for lands east of the Klickitat County Fire District 7 eastern boundary to include but not limited to Klickitat County Fire Districts 2, 9 and 10; outside the corporate limits of any city or town; the jurisdiction of the Yakama Indian Nation; and the jurisdiction of the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission and prohibiting the issuance of burning permits except for authorized agricultural burning. Residential barbecues will be allowed. This ban on outdoor burning shall be in full force and effect through October 15. The public is directed to check with the appropriate authorities concerning burning restrictions within the corporate limits of any city or town.
