Yakima County burn ban upgraded to stage two

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- The burn ban in Yakima County is upgraded to stage two, and it will likely remain that way for the rest of the week. The ban is in place due to poor air quality.

All outdoor burning is prohibited including agricultural burning and the use of solid fuel burning fireplaces or stoves. The only exception is if the fireplace is the only means to heat a home.
