After rainy bout of weather, burn ban lifted
The dry season and the blue skies seemed like they would never end, but it finally did last Thursday. And now, the burn ban which had been in effect indefinitely, has finally been lifted.
As of Tuesday, Oct. 16, at 8 a.m., the King County Fire Marshal lifted the Phase 1 burn ban. It had been in effect since July 15 and applied to all outdoor burning except for small recreational fires in established fire pits at approved camp grounds or private property.
