Stage 1 Burn Ban remains in Effect for King, Pierce,
and Snohomish Counties.
Please rely on your home's cleaner source of heat until air quality improves.
Due to stagnant weather conditions, Stage 1 burn bans are in effect for King, Pierce and Snohomish counties, until further notice.
"Cold and calm conditions will persist for a few more days," said Dr. Phil Swartzendruber, agency forecaster. "In neighborhoods where wood-burning is common, air pollution levels could reach the UNHEALTHY FOR SENSITIVE GROUPS category."
"We encourage everyone who doesn't rely on wood heat to use instead their home's cleaner source of heat until weather conditions change."
