Ban on outdoor barbecue and recreational fires ends

The Bainbridge Island Fire Department reports that the countywide ban on recreational fires has been lifted as of Friday, Sept. 7.

The Kitsap County fire marshal has lifted the prohibition on recreational fires in Kitsap County.

Recreational fires in approved locations and in appliances can resume immediately, officials said.

“Cooler weather, shorter days and a more fall-like weather forecasts allows us to lift the recreational fire ban,” said County Fire Marshal David Lynam.

“Fire danger is still precarious, and caution is still the name of the game,” Lyman added.

A Phase 1 burn ban remains in effect. Officials expect it will remain in effect until rain arrives in the fall.

The Phase 2 burn ban, now lifted, was put in place on Friday, Aug. 17. It banned all outdoor fires, including recreational fires as well as the use of backyard fire kettles, chimneys and fire pits.
