Stage 2 Burn Ban - No Open Burning on Vashon Island
Email Print RSS Facebook Twitter RSS

By Chief Matthew Vinci
September 9, 2022

Effective Friday, September 9th, the King County Fire Chiefs have issued a ‘Stage 2’ Fire Safety Burn
Ban which prohibits recreational fires until further notice. This means all outdoor fires, including
recreational campfires, cooking fires, and ceremonial fires, are prohibited until further notice due to
critical fire weather.

The Stage 2 Fire Safety Burn Ban is in response to the fire safety Red Flag Warning issued today by the
National Weather Service covering all of King County and the Puget Sound Region. The King County
Fire Chiefs, King County Fire Marshals, and jurisdictions throughout King County have joined together
to issue a Stage Two burn ban covering all parts of King County.

While all outdoor fires are banned, propane or natural-gas fired grills, fireplaces, fire tables, other gasfired appliances and charcoal grills may continue to be used. Vashon Fire and Rescue urge caution when disposing of charcoal remains.

Please contact Vashon Island Fire and Rescue for any questions at 206-463-2405.
