Effective immediately, the King County Fire Marshal and the King County Fire Chiefs Association, in coordination with local jurisdictions, have issued a Stage 2 Complete burn ban on all outdoor recreational fires throughout King County.
In response to continued hot/dry weather, high fire danger throughout King County, and the ongoing commitment of many local wildland firefighting resources outside the region, the King County Fire Chiefs, King County Fire Marshals, and jurisdictions throughout King County have joined together to issue a Stage 2
Complete Burn Ban covering all parts of King County.
This means any outdoor fire, such as a backyard fire pit or campfire using firewood is PROHIBITED.
The ban does not include propane or natural gas-fired grills, fireplaces, fire tables, and enclosed pellet cooking smokers. Other gas-fired appliances may continue to be used along with charcoal grills. Please be advised to use caution when disposing of charcoal remains.
