Burn ban in effect on Muckleshoot Reservation

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 10 has called a burn ban on all outdoor burning on several Indian reservations, including the Muckleshoot, until further notice due to stagnant air conditions.

The burn ban applies to all outdoor and agricultural burning, including camping and recreational fires within reservation boundaries. Ceremonial and traditional fires are exempt from the outdoor burn ban.

Please call 1-800-424-4EPA and ask for the FARR Hotline or visit the Federal Air Rules for Reservations (FARR) Web site for the current burn status: www.epa.gov/r10earth/FARR.htm.
