Phase I Burn Ban

The Kitsap County Fire Marshal's Office announced today that a Phase I burn ban will be put into effect July 12 at 8 a.m. throughout Kitsap County.

A phase I burn ban limits outdoor burning to recreational fires in campgrounds and other areas in approved locations and devices. General back yard burning as well as land clearing is prohibited and all burning permits will be suspended for the immediate future until the ban is lifted.

Recreational fires must be 3 feet or less in size, in a designated fire pit using only charcoal or dry firewood (no milled lumber). Fires must be constantly attended until fully extinguished and at least one on-site fire-extinguishing equipment available for immediate use while burning.

"The ban is due to drying trends and higher temperatures in the weather forecast as well as an increased number of brush fires in recent weeks, particularly from escaped burn piles," says David Lyman, Kitsap County's Fire Marshal.
