There has been some confusing and incorrect information in the media as to the fire danger level and what is now allowed and what is not. To clarify that on this 4th of July:
The fire danger is now at HIGH. Under current restrictions small campfires are still permitted so long as they are in approved-type fire pits and only natural firewood is burned; burning of treated wood, trash, building debris, yard waste and slash is not permitted. An approved-type fire pit is smaller than 36 inches diameter and goes all the way down into mineral soil. The area around the pit must be clear of combustible material. Please use common sense- just because a campfire is not prohibited doesn’t mean it’s a smart thing to do with high wind conditions.
THE DISCHARGE OF FIREWORKS IS PROHIBITED IN CHELAN COUNTY AND IN THE NATIONAL FOREST.
Have a fun and safe 4th of July!
