Effectively immediately, the Kirkland Fire Department is issuing a safety burn ban. Until further notice all fires are prohibited due to the extremely dry, hot and breezy weather conditions we are experiencing. This weather pattern is expected to continue through the weekend. The Kirkland Fire Department will reevaluate conditions on Monday, Aug. 22.
This ban includes all wood burning including fireplaces and fire pits. Gas/propane and charcoal grills are permitted.
