Burn ban lifted for King County

Posted by Meghan Walker on January 16th, 2013

Let the Christmas tree bonfires resume: the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency has lifted the air quality burn ban that was put in place earlier this week. A burn ban remains in effect for Pierce and Snohomish counties until further notice.

“We’re lifting the ban in King County because air pollution levels there have improved,” said Dr. Phil Swartzendruber, agency forecaster, in a statement. “Based on historic patterns, it’s unlikely they’ll reach trigger levels in the next few days.”
