Clark County fire marshal lifts ban on recreational fires

By , Columbian Assistant Metro Editor

The Clark County interim fire marshal will lift the ban on recreational fires in unincorporated Clark County effective Saturday morning due to cooler temperatures.

Recreational fires will be allowed in approved fire pits. The use of burn barrels is illegal in unincorporated Clark County.

Under the modified ban, burning yard debris and material from land clearing will continue to be prohibited until at least Oct. 1, depending on fire conditions.

“Please keep in mind that just because we’ve had cooler temperatures, fires are still possible,” Fire Marshal Curtis Eavenson said in a news release. “Don’t let down your guard.”
