KIRKLAND, Wash. – Effective Thursday, September 2, 2021, the Kirkland Fire Department has terminated the Stage 2 fire safety burn ban which prohibited small recreational fires.
Recent precipitation and cooler weather have reduced wildland fire danger to a level where the responsible burning of small recreational fires may resume. While the burn ban has ended, wildland fire danger remains elevated, and the Fire Department asks that residents continue to use extra care when burning and disposing of ashes. Kirkland remains under a permanent Stage 1 burn ban that prohibits the burning of yard waste, trash and other debris, and limits the size of outdoor fires to 3-feet in diameter by 2-feet high.
