Forks Bans All Outdoor Burning

The City of Forks is declaring a fire danger – and is banning all burning within the city limits.  Forks is already under voluntary water restriction due to the recent hot dry weather.  The order was signed yesterday by Fire chief Bill Paul and Mayor Tim Fletcher.  It bans all open flame recreational fires such as open fire pits, fire rings, and chimney style fire pits.  These cannot be used for cooking.  The ban also includes the use of torches for treatment of yards and driveways.
