Spokane Clean Air lifts burning ban

SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane Regional Clean Air Agency has lifted the ban on outdoor burning and the use of uncertified wood stoves, inserts, and fireplaces, effective immediately.

The ban was originally put in place last Friday, due to air stagnation. Air stagnation is still an issue, but air quality has remained in the good to moderate range, which prompted officials to lift the ban.
