The Kitsap County Fire Marshal announces that general outdoor burning may resume in unincorporated areas of Kitsap County effective immediately. The recent rainfall and anticipated wet weather patterns have significantly reduced the county’s fire hazard and decreased the demand on fire resources across the state.With the return of burning, Kitsap County Fire Marshal David Lynam reminds people that extra safety is still required. “Lighter fuels are much wetter than before, but the heavy fuels are still quite dry – particularly for downed timber and those burn piles that have stacked up all summer," according to Lynam. "Please be extra careful as fires can easily get out of control and spread after such a long dry period,” Lynam added.
All rules governing outdoor burning still apply
