Burn ban downgraded

— A county-wide burn ban has been downgraded to a Stage One level.

The Yakima Regional Clean Air Authority yesterday declared the change from a Stage Two burn ban.

Using a fireplace or uncertified wood stove or insert is prohibited unless it is a home’s only source of heat, officials said.

All outdoor burning is prohibited as well.
