OLYMPIA — The Department of Natural Resources has banned fires on state-protected lands in Eastern Washington.
The ban announced Monday starts Tuesday and extends through Sept. 30.
Fireworks are illegal on state-protected lands. But fire pits are allowed at designated campgrounds and gas-powered camp stoves are OK.
The department says fires are banned because of weather and fuel conditions. The ban could be extended to Western Washington.
So far this season, the department has fought 172 wildfires that burned 779 acres in the state.
