Well, this isn't really a surprise. The Spokane Valley Fire Department fire marshal has issued burn restrictions for Spokane Valley, Liberty Lake and Millwood. After so much hot and dry weather, it wouldn't take much to spark a wildfire. All open burning and most types of recreational fires are banned. Backyard barbecues, portable outdoor fireplaces and other patio/deck warmers are still allowed.
The burning restrictions will last until the fire danger drops. You can check out the fire department web site for more details.
The burn restrictions imposed in Spokane Valley, Millwood and Liberty Lake in early August will be lifted today, according to a press release from the Spokane Valley Fire Department. The restrictions applied to open burning and recreational fires. However, a permanent ban on yard waste fires is still in place.
