Burn Ban downgraded to Stage 1

The Yakima Regional Clean Air Agency has downgraded the burn ban to Stage 1.

Under a Stage 1 burn ban:

All outdoor burning is prohibited throughout Yakima County.

All violations of the burn ban are subject to civil penalty.

This temporary restriction is due to the buildup of air pollution and current weather conditions. Please check the Yakima Regional Clean Air agency website for the latest information.
