State parks lift burn ban east of the Cascades

The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission announced the end of a general campfire ban in state parks east of the Cascades.

The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission announced the end of a general campfire ban in state parks east of the Cascades.

The action follows an announcement Wednesday by the Department of Natural Resources, lifting a ban on recreational fires on lands under DNR fire protection east of the Cascades. An earlier statewide ban on campfires was lifted in August for Western Washington state park campgrounds.

The summer ban on recreational campfires had extended to open fires and briquettes but had allowed use of propane devices for cooking and warming.

Some restrictions may remain in place for specific state parks or portions of parks. Visitors are advised to check the State Parks website for more details.
