SEPTEMBER 1, 1997
Burn ban lifted
SEATTLE--Early last week King County officials lifted the county-wide burn ban following a change in the weather. Gay Johnson, assistant fire marshal, said the fire hazard decreased dramatically after recent rains and dropping temperatures. The Woodinville Fire and Life Safety District continue to ban residential burning until Oct. 1.
Snohomish County Fire District 7 has imposed a burn ban through Oct. 15. District 7 encompasses Maltby, Clearview, Cathcart, Canyon Park and the North Creek area in south Snohomish County.
The burn ban has been lifted in King County although fire districts continue to limit residential burning until October.
