With major fire potential forecasting returning to “normal” or “minimal” levels, Burning Restrictions which went into effect July 29th, 2016 are officially lifted (attachment) within the unincorporated areas of Spokane County as of today, October 3rd, 2016. Residents may resume outdoor burning activities and the use of outdoor recreational fire pits, campfire rings/bowls, portable outdoor fire places. The cities of Spokane and Spokane Valley are similarly lifting burn restrictions in this coordinated effort.
• Note: Burning may be temporarily restricted by Spokane Regional Clean Air Agency due to increasing fine particle (smoke) levels and air stagnation. Check current status at https://www.spokanecleanair.org/current-burning-conditions
