Fires bans on state Fish and Wildlife lands ends, but public urged to still use caution

As the wet weather finally arrived, state Fish and Wildlife has ended their emergency restrictions on managed lands.

While the cooler, wetter weather has calmed the fire danger those heading into the woods are still asked to be cautious.

The end of the restriction also coincides with the Washington Department of Natural Resources which lifted statewide burn bans recently.

The end of restrictions now allows campers, hunters and others visting lands to use campfires, practice target shooting, use generators and operate chainsaws.

To view rules on lands visit the state Fish and Wildlife website.
