Burn bans lifted in Snohomish and King, lowered in Pierce

SEATTLE (AP) — The burn bans for Snohomish and King counties have been lifted. And the burn ban in parts of Pierce County has been lowered to a stage one burn ban.

The Puget Sound Clean Air Agency says air pollution remains an issue in Pierce County.

During a stage one burn ban, burning is allowed in pellet stoves and EPA certified wood stoves and inserts. In a stage two burn ban, all wood burning is prohibited.

The Pierce County ban is for some, but not all, residents of the county. For more information visit www.pscleanair.org/burnban .
