October 10, 2012 · 10:43 AM

Gov. Chris Gregoire this week announced that an emergency proclamation declaring a State of Emergency and banning all outdoor burning has been extended through midnight Monday, Oct. 15.

The burn ban prohibits all outdoor burning, including but not limited to campfires and bonfires; fireworks; and residential yard debris clean-up, trash disposal, land clearing, weed abatement and agricultural burning. Charcoal grills and liquid fueled and gas-fueled stoves are permitted as long as they are used over a non-flammable surface.
