Fire Burn is in Effect during the Labor Day Weekend

Effective Midnight, Monday, August 28, 2006, open campfires are banned on the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, except in designated Forest Service campgrounds. This restriction also applies to all Wilderness areas managed in whole or part by the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest.

A campfireless weekend ahead

If you're headed for the wilderness this Labor Day weekend, forget about a campfire.

Because of increased fire danger, the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest joined Olympic National Park, Olympic National Forest, and the Okanogan and Wenatchee National Forests in banning all campfires except in designated campgrounds. Bring a stove, and watch it carefully.

In addition, the entire Naches Ranger District east of Yakima in the Wenatchee National Forest has banned all campfires, including those in established campgrounds.
