Burn ban lifted in Spokane County

Burn ban lifted in Spokane County

A stage 1 burn ban was lifted across Spokane County on Friday afternoon.

As of 12 p.m. restrictions on all outdoor burning and the use of non-EPA certified wood burning stoves and fireplaces have been lifted.

The region is still under an air stagnation advisory, so air pollutants may still pose a concern in some areas. The Spokane Regional Clean Air Agency said, therefore, everyone is encouraged to limit their burning if possible.
