WEST SEATTLE WEATHER: Stage 1 burn ban ordered

The Puget Sound Clean Air Agency is adding King County to its burn-ban list. As of 2 pm today, a Stage 1 burn ban will be in effect. Here’s what that means:

*No burning is allowed in wood-burning fireplaces, uncertified wood stoves or uncertified fireplace inserts unless this is your only adequate source of heat.

*Even those using a certified device or those for whom this is their only adequate source of heat cannot generate visible smoke.

*All outdoor burning is prohibited, even in areas where outdoor burning is not permanently banned. This includes wood- and charcoal-fueled recreational fires.

Also, the National Weather Service‘s air-stagnation advisory continues.

    Random question maybe you can find an answer for; what implications do burn bans have for restauarants and places that operate smokers (like a barbecue place, or wood fired pizza ovens).   Always wondered if there was an exemption for them?

Sorry, comment time is over.
