Camas-Washougal Fire Department lifts fire ban

Due to cooler temperatures and increased humidity, the Camas-Washougal Fire Department has lifted the recreational fire ban that has been in place since late June. 

Department officials will continue to monitor weather conditions in the coming weeks in case the ban needs to be enacted again. 

Residents are urged to be safe and keep all recreational fires at least 25 feet away from structures and other combustible materials. Such fires may be no larger than 3-feet wide and 2-feet high and can only burn charcoal or dry natural firewood.  Enclosed barbecues and commercial fireplaces may be used as per manufacturer labels.
