Eastern Washington burn bans expire Tuesday

OLYMPIA – Stage 1 burn bans will expire at 10 a.m. Tuesday in Kittitas, Chelan, Douglas, Okanogan, Ferry, Stevens and Pend Oreille counties.

The Washington Department of Ecology called the burn bans last Friday because stagnant air conditions put counties at risk for air pollution to reach unhealthy levels. Conditions have improved enough to cancel the burn bans.
