Burn ban begins Saturday, July 157/14/2017

The Kitsap County Fire Marshal announces the implementation of a Phase One burning ban effective at 12:01 am Saturday 7/15/17.  According to Fire Marshal David Lynam "Outdoor burning bans have become commonplace during summer months and into the fall due to our nice summer weather.  The warm, dry conditions have overcome our wet winter and now much of the material on the forest floor is as dry as the kiln dried lumber we buy in a lumber yard." 

As of Saturday morning, burning permits are suspended and all outdoor burning throughout the county is prohibited except for campfires in designated areas at campgrounds and small recreational fires on residential property.  The prohibition on outdoor burning in Kitsap county is in coordination with the Washington State Department of Natural Resources and our neighboring counties including Mason, Pierce, King and Snohomish.
