All burn bans lifted for Western Washington

The burn bans in King, Pierce and Snohomish counties, including Darrington, have been lifted following heightened concern of rising air pollution levels Thursday.

With the help of rain and wind, air pollution levels everywhere dropped to “good” and “lower moderate” Friday night, according to the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency.

The levels had dropped Friday to Stage 1, which banned outdoor fires, including bonfires, campfires and the use of fire pits and chimineas.

While only light winds are expected during the day Saturday, the agency expects an approaching weather system to increase winds and rain late Saturday night and into Sunday, which will  help disperse the current air pollution and keep levels low for the next two to three days.

An app, Burn Ban 411, is available for people to monitor current burn bans, or visit the website.
