Burn ban called for Yakima County

The Yakima Regional Clean Air Authority has called a burn ban for all of Yakima County that is expected to last until this coming Thursday afternoon.

The burn ban is a stage one ban, which means all outdoor burning is not allowed. Certified wood stoves and fireplace inserts are allowed. Uncertified wood stoves and inserts may only be used if they are a home's only source of heat.
