DNR, Rural 7 lift burn bans


The Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Thursday announced that the statewide burn ban on DNR-protected lands has been rescinded. Fire danger has been reduced by the recent rainfall and moderating temperatures.

Restrictions set by local authorities are not affected by DNR’s action. Additionally, while conditions no longer warrant a statewide burn ban, some local areas within the state remain dry. Potential burners and the public at large are reminded to check with those local authorities before burning.
