burn ban liftedThe Mason County Community development Director, as acting Fire Marshal, and in partnership with the Mason County Fire Chiefs’ Association, has determined that current weather conditions within Mason County, the near term forecast, and the recent “fall like weather” we have been having allows Mason County to lift the burn ban currently in effect.

This action mirrors that of the Department of Natural Resources whose website states “As of Tuesday, Sept. 20, the burn ban west of the Cascades has been lifted to allow outdoor burning”.
