Our dry weather has fueled several grass fires in Aberdeen and Battalion Chief Tom Hubbard says residents need to take extra precautions.
Hubbard says that there is a burn ban withinGrays Harbor. The ban is in effect through September 30, 2011 on all forest lands under Department of Natural Resources jurisdiction.
All outdoor burning is banned with the exception of recreational fires in approved fire pits within designated state, county, municipal or other campgrounds. The use of gas and propane barbeques and self contained stoves are allowed.
