This includes campfires, bonfires or similar recreational burning regardless of location.  Charcoal briquettes in approved bar-be-cues or similar appliances may still be used.
“The ban is necessary due to the ongoing dry and unseasonably warm conditions,” according to David Lynam, Kitsap County’s Fire Marshal. “Resources across the state are stretched thin due to several large fires still out of control and there is precocious little left to assist Kitsap should something gets going in our neighborhood,” he added.
The Phase 2 ban is being implemented across Kitsap, Mason and Pierce counties effective tomorrow and will stay in place until further notice.
