Breeze ends burn ban

Stagnant weather conditions and rising air pollution prompted the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency call for a Stage 1 burn ban for Pierce County earlier this week.

This ban has now been lifted.

The purpose of the burn ban was to reduce the amount of pollution that creates unhealthy air linked to excessive wood smoke.
