Burn Ban
Effective June 23, 2015 in Clark County: outdoor burn ban

Strengthening the statewide burn ban on June 26, 2015, this Proclamation from Gov. Inslee was put into place.  This supersedes the June 22nd burn ban by the Department of Natural Resources.

Gov. Inslee declared a drought for some Washington regions.  In March, he expanded the drought to include more counties in the state, including Clark County in April.  Effective in May, a statewide drought emergency was declared.  For more about drought conditions, see the Drought 2015 from the Washington State Department of Ecology.
