Kittitas County, WA -
Kittitas County Fire Marshal, today announced that Kittitas County will lift the county wide burn ban effective September 25, 2023 at noon.
The burn ban was originally implemented based on the following criteria: dry conditions along with lowering relative humidity and low fuel moisture content of 10-, 100- and 1,000-hour fuels, elevated the risk of wild land fires. It has become apparent that with the fuel moisture content currently seen in our region, the relative humidity, and the projected weather patterns, a burn ban is no longer necessary.
Fire safety is everyone's responsibility! All outdoor fires must be constantly attended by an adult until the fire is extinguished. Provide adequate means for extinguishing a fire and keep it readily available. Don't burn if wind conditions make it hazardous.
Any questions regarding burning regulations within the unincorporated areas of Kittitas County may be directed to Dan Young at the County Fire Marshal’s Office.
