Stage 1 burn ban in place

— The existing burn ban in Yakima County was downgraded from stage 2 to 1 yesterday.

Stage 1 is not as restrictive as stage 2.

A ban on the use of uncertified wood stoves, inserts and fireplaces will be in place until further notice.

Under a Stage 1, the use of certified wood stoves, pellet stoves and other certified wood-burning devices is allowed.

All outdoor burning is prohibited throughout Yakima County.
