The Fire Danger Rating for the Northeast Region is still HIGH. The Washington Commissioner of Public Lands issued a Commissioner’s Burn Ban Order to be in effect from September 25 – 30, 2020. DNR uses burn restrictions and when conditions warrant, a Commissioner Order Burn Ban, as a tool to reduce human-caused wildfires during extremely hot and dry weather conditions. Even though the Commissioner’s Burn Ban Order will have elapsed, a burn restriction is still in place prohibiting outdoor fires on state, county, city, and private land in our area under DNR fire protection. Restricting campfires and debris-burning helps to reduce the likelihood of potentially destructive and dangerous wildfires.
