Prolonged hot and dry weather prompted Pierce County fire marshal Warner Webb to order a Phase One burn ban Monday.
Under the ban, all burning permits are suspended and outdoor burning is prohibited, except for small recreational fires less than three feet in diameter, barbecues and cooking appliances, outdoor fireplaces, and campfires in approved fire pits and locations at established campgrounds.
Persons with approved state Department of Natural Resources burn permits are advised to call 800-323-2876. More information is available from the fire marshal at (253) 798-7179.
