Burn ban lifted for King, surrounding counties

The burn ban has been lifted in King, Kitsap, Pierce, and Snohomish Counties as of Friday.

Effective 2 p.m., there are no air quality burn bans currently in effect in the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency jurisdiction.

Fire safety burn bans are still in effect. Contact the county fire marshal for more information.

Smoke levels have reduced to moderate or good in most areas now. Winds have reversed, and we expect the British Columbia wildfire smoke to blow east again for the next couple weeks. That means a return to more typical summertime good air quality.

The B.C. wildfires aren’t expected to stop until the fall rains come, so another high pressure ridge could return the smoke. But thankfully, the two-week outlook continues to keep smoke away from Puget Sound.
