Burn ban

Wildfire smoke from British Columbia combined with the historic heat wave hitting Western Washington have counties across the state issuing burn bans.
Here's a list of what's allowed:
King County: Stage 1 air quality burn ban. No charcoal barbeques, fire pits, chimeneas, fire bowls, or similar free-standing devices, campfires or bonfires, fireplaces, uncertified wood stoves, or uncertified inserts, agricultural fires (as described in the agricultural burn permit). Native American ceremonial fire permits outside of tribal lands are not granted from the local fire district during air quality burn bans.
It is OK to use natural gas and propane stoves or inserts during a Stage 1 burn ban.
