YAKIMA Officials have issued a Stage 2 burn ban for Yakima County.
It’s an upgrade over the Stage 1 ban the Yakima Regional Clean Air Agency’s air pollution control officer previously declared.
During a Stage 2 burn ban, all outdoor burning, including agricultural burning, is prohibited.
The use of any fireplace, wood stove or insert is prohibited too, unless it is the only source of heat.
