The statewide burn ban put in effect by the Department of Natural Resources has been extended.
The ban is set to lift on September 30.
The department announced Friday, due to recent changes in weather, recreational campfires are permitted in established fire rings in official campgrounds west of the Cascades.
All other outdoor burning on department land remains prohibited.
However, campfires in State Parks east of the mountains are still prohibited until further notice.
Those caught starting or spreading fires are subject to civil and criminal penalties.
The fire season usually runs through October and so far this year, according to the Department of Natural Resources, more than $91 million has been spent so far fighting more than 350,000 burned acres across the state.
The burn ban applies to land under the department’s protection, it does not include federally owned lands.
