UNREASONABLE DRY FUELS, WARM TEMPERATURES INCREASE FIRE DANGER

The Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR), in cooperation with partner agencies, is adding new burn restrictions on DNR-protected lands in eastern Washington effective April 22, 2021. The new restrictions are a response to increasing fire danger and an increase in fires caused by people burning debris outdoors.

Warming temperatures have dried grasses, and grassy areas are more receptive to even a single spark, which can cause a wildfire. In the Northeast region, 171 wildfires have been started in 2021, including 117 since April 1. Most have been caused by people burning debris outdoors.

The following additional restrictions will be implemented in parts of the Northeast Region, effective Thursday, April 22, 2021:
Campfires are NOT allowed except in approved designated campgrounds in the following Fire Danger Rating Areas: Foothills, Highlands and Upper Basin in Spokane, and portions of Lincoln County north of Hwy. 2.

Permit burning (written burn permits issued by DNR) is NOT allowed in the following Fire Danger Rating Areas: Foothills, and Upper Basin in Spokane, and portions of Lincoln County north of Hwy.

Rule burns are still NOT allowed in the following Fire Danger Rating Areas: Foothills, Highlands and Upper Basin in Spokane, and portions of Lincoln County north of Hwy. 2.

Fire Danger will increase from low to moderate in the following Fire Danger Rating Areas: Foothills, Highlands, Lower Basin and Upper Basin.
