Due to the extreme fire danger, effective at 12:01 am, July 26, recreational fires will be prohibited throughout unincorporated Clark and Skamania counties.
This recreational fire restriction is in addition to the general outdoor burning prohibition that was implemented on July 1. According to Fire Marshal Jon Dunaway this is a preventive measure to reduce the risk of grass or brush fires as a result of escaped camp fires.
The ban also includes lands protected by the Washington State Department of Natural Resources.
