— The Klickitat County Department of Emergency Management has created new zones for outdoor burn bans.

It consists of three zones across the county:

  • Zone One is the eastern part of the county.
  • Zone Two is the central area.
  • Zone Three is the western area.

For clarity the zone boundaries follow fire district boundaries as much as possible, officials said.

Zone One

Zone One is east of the Klickitat County Fire District No. 7 eastern boundary, east to the county line. It included but is not limited to Fire District Nos. 2, 9 and 10, outside the jurisdiction of the Yakama Indian Reservation and the jurisdiction of the State Parks and Recreation Commission.

Zone Two between the Klickitat County Fire District No. 7 eastern boundary west to the western boundaries of Fire District Nos. 4, 12 and 15, then north on the Klickitat River to the north county line.

It includes, but is not limited to, Klickitat County Fire District Nos. 4, 5, 6, 7, 11, 12, 14 and 15, outside the jurisdiction of the Yakama Indian Reservation and the jurisdiction of the State Parks and Recreation Commission.
