Asotin County Burn Ban In Effect

Asotin County Burn Ban In Effect

Propane/Charcoal BBQs, Propane Fire Rings Allowed

ASOTIN COUNTY, WA – A burn ban is now in effect for the unincorporated parts of Asotin County.  County Commissioners accepted the recommendation because of the hot and dry conditions.  Asotin County and Clarkston Firefighters responded to a grass fire yesterday near the Red Wolf Bridge, then went back again later in the day because conditions allowed it to flare up again.

The only exceptions to the burn ban are campfires in Chief Timothy Park in designated pits, as well as approved propane fire rings and propane and charcoal barbeques on private property.

If you choose to burn during the ban, you will be fined $200 for your first violation.  It goes up from there.  A fourth violation will cost you $10,000.  You can also be charged the cost of extinguishing your fire.

The burn ban is in place until further notice.
