Beginning January 20, 2017, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is extending a ban on all outdoor open burning on the Yakama Reservation due to stagnant air conditions and elevated air pollution. This burn ban is extended until further notice.

The burn ban applies to all outdoor and agricultural burning—including camping and recreational fires—in all areas within external reservation boundaries regardless of ownership or tribal membership.  Ceremonial and traditional fires are exempt from the burn ban.  For areas outside reservation boundaries, please contact your local clean air agency, fire department, or the Washington State Department of Ecology.
