Effective Thursday June 1st at 0800hrs the King County Fire Chief’s Association, King County Fire Marshals Association and the King County Fire Marshal are implementing a STAGE 1 (burn restrictions) Ban.  This ban specifically relates to yard debris/residential burning.

The King County Fire Chiefs, Fire Marshals and local jurisdictions encourage all residents to burn according to their local jurisdictions requirements and maintain a fire safe environment.  If you have any questions, please contact your local Fire Department.
