Burn ban reduced

— Due to slightly improved air quality conditions, the current Stage 2 burn ban in Yakima County is reduced to Stage 1.

During a Stage 1 burn ban all outdoor burning, including agricultural burning, is prohibited.

Also, use of any fireplace, wood stove or fireplace insert is prohibited, unless it is a certified heating device or the only source of heat.
