News Release: Thurston County Initiates Countywide Fire Safety Burn Ban

From The Olympian:

Summer weather is finally here — and rain is no longer in the forecast — prompting Thurston County officials to enact a burn ban to head off brush fires and worse.

Outdoor burning on all lands regulated by Thurston County are being restricted starting immediately and lasting until Sept. 30, according to a county news release. The Thurston County Fire Marshal, along with the county emergency services director, the Department of Natural Resources and the Olympic Region Clean Air Agency made the announcement after determining that current weather conditions in the county are at high fire danger level.

The ban applies to residential yard waste burning and all land-clearing burns.
