Burn ban still active

The Commissioner of Public Lands has lifted the State Wide Burn Ban on DNR protected lands. The attached Press Release will be going out shortly. The DNR has made sure to note that the public will need to check with local authorities prior to burning. Not much changes with this for us here in Klickitat County. All lands within a County Fire Protection District will still remain under the county wide burn ban.
We have also dropped to an IFPL1 and a fire danger of Moderate. If you have any questions feel free to contact myself or the local fire foresters Scott Brewer and Jordan Tsubota.
Restrictions set by local authorities are not affected by DNR’s action. Additionally, while conditions no longer warrant a statewide burn ban, some local areas within the state remain dry. Potential burners and the public at large are reminded to check with those local authorities before burning. For local fire restrictions, visit:  http://fortress.wa.gov/dnr/firedanger/BurnRisk.aspx
