BURN BAN IN PLACE, FIRE DANGER VERY HIGH

14  BURN BAN IN EFFECT  FIRE DANGER VERY HIGH jpeg

THE CHELAN COUNTY COMMISSIONERS HAVE ENACTED A BAN ON ALL OUTDOOR BUNING. THIS PROHIBITS ANY OUTDOOR BURNING INCLUDING CAMPFIRES, BEACH FIRES, YARDWASTE AND CHARCOLA  BARBEQUES.  VIOLATIONS CARRY A SIGIFICANT PENALTY AND SHERIFF’S DEPUTIES WILL ISSUE CITATIONS FOR VIOLATIONS OF THE ORDINANCE.

THE FIRE DANGER IS RATED VERY HIGH AND THE CONTINUING DRY, HOT WINDY CONDITIONS CREATE A SITUATION WHERE ANY SMALL FIRE CAN AND PROBABLY WILL ESCALATE RAPIDLY INTO A DANGEROUS FIRE.  WE ARE CURRENTLY DEALING WITH LARGE UNCONTROLLED FIRES EAST, NORTH AND SOUTH  OF US. HUNDREDS OF HOMES ARE UNDER LEVEL 3 EVACUATION NOTICES AND SEVERAL MAJOR ROADS ARE CLOSED AS A RESULT OF THIS FIRE ACTIVITY.  PLEASE EXERCISE GREAT CARE TO NOT RISK CREATION OF ANOTHER DANGEROUS INCIDENT.
