Burn restrictions lifted in Clallam County

October 11th, 2017 - 05:30 am

(Port Angeles) – Clallam County's burn ban has been lifted.

After staying in place for nearly two weeks longer than usual, the county fire marshal says effective today, all outdoor burning will be permitted.

However, those living in the cities and urban growth areas of Port Angeles, Sequim, Carlsborg and Joyce are restricted from outdoor burning under state law.

A long, dry summer prompted longer and stricter restrictions on lands around the area this year.

The county has an annual burn restriction in place each summer, but it is usually lifted at the end of September.
