Modified burn ban starts soon in Island County
Outdoor burning will soon be over in Island County, starting Tuesday, July 15.
Island County Sheriff Mark Brown, also the county’s fire marshal, sent out the notice of the burn ban which prohibits outdoor burning of natural debris, including burns that were issued permits.
Only recreational and cooking fires in approved concrete or metal fire pits, like those in established camp sites, are allowed.
Violations may be reported to 911.
The countywide ban remains in effect until the sheriff calls it off, based on information about the saturation of the ground and from Island County’s fire protection districts.
