Fire Marshals lifts Spokane County burn bans

Fire restrictions put in place over the summer were lifted Friday morning.

Cooler and wetter forecasted conditions have prompted Spokane Metro Area Fire Marshals to lift the burn bans, which have been in place since July 24. The burn ban lifting effects specified outdoor recreational fires, such as campfires, fire bowls and fire pits.

“We want to thank everyone for their compliance with the burn restrictions this summer,” said Greg Rogers, Spokane Valley Fire Department Fire Marshal. “We experienced a fairly smoke free summer and safer conditions this year.”

Outdoor recreational fires, including campfires, will be allowed in Spokane County, following standard fire-burning regulations.
