The Kitsap County Fire Marshal announced the implementation of a Phase I fire safety burn ban effective Thursday, July 30th, 2020 at 8:00am.
Under a Phase I burn ban, all outdoor burning is prohibited expect for small recreational fires in approved fire pits and appliances, or as allowed in established campgrounds. The outdoor burn ban shall remain in effect until further notice. This is a fire safety burn ban.
According to Fire Marshal David Lynam, "The cooler and wet weather delayed implementation of a ban for several weeks this year. But, with the hot and dry weather we have recently experienced, fuels are thoroughly dried out." The Fire Marshal also identifies the increase in fires in other parts of the state. That increase draws upon resources that might otherwise be available to Kitsap County to fight a wildfire.
