Burn ban lifted

(Port Orchard, WA) - Kitsap County Fire Marshal David Lynam has lifted the burning ban that went in effect August 19. "A recent return to a fall-like weather pattern with rain and higher moisture levels predicted allows us to lift the burn ban," said Lynam.

"General outdoor burning may resume immediately, provided that normal rules, regulations and permitting requirements are followed," Lynam added. For more information about rules and regulations visit the Fire Marshal's web page at
