Today the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is lifting its burn ban on open burning for the Tulalip, Stillaguamish, Sauk-Suiattle and Puyallup Indian Reservations in Snohomish and Pierce Counties due to improved air quality, effective at 8:00 a.m., January 11, 2016.
A burn ban remains in effect for the Yakama Nation Reservation due to stagnant air conditions forecasted to continue in eastern Washington.
