The upgraded burn ban will take effect immediately and be effective until further notice. This restriction bans all outdoor burning, including recreational fires.
Exceptions: Charcoal and Gas Grills
Incorporated cities and towns included in this outdoor burning ban are Lake Stevens, Mill Creek, Monroe, and Sultan.
All residential outdoor burn permits, including permits issued by PSCAA (Puget Sound Clean Air Agency) for agricultural burning, are suspended until this ban is lifted. This ban will remain in effect until there is a sustained period of rainfall and the fire risk is reduced. Visit the bulletin for more information.
