[ARCHIVED] Emergency Burn Ban in effect beginning May 9, 2019

Unusually high temperatures, low humidity and high winds have increased risk of fire hazard.  The emergency burn ban is expected to be in place temporarily through Monday, May 13, 2019 or until further notice.  All land clearing, residential and silvicultural burning will be restricted until the ban is lifted.  The Cowlitz County Fire Marshal is rescinding all burn permits issued prior to the burn ban; they can be reissued or extended when the ban is lifted.
