The Environmental Protection Agency also has called a burn ban on several Indian reservations in Western Washington, including Tulalip and Stillaguamish. The ban applies to all outdoor and agricultural burning, including camping and recreational fires within reservation boundaries. Ceremonial and traditional fires are exempt from the ban.
The EPA also requests that reservation residents reduce all sources of air pollution, including excess driving and idling of vehicles, and the use of woodstoves and fireplaces unless it is the only source of heat.
