Recreational Fires Restricted in Newcastle
Posted on 09/08/2020

Due to current conditions, the Bellevue Fire Department is banning recreational fires immediately in Bellevue and its contract cities, including the City of Newcastle, until further notice. Under this order, any outdoor fire such as a backyard fire pit or campfire using chopped firewood or charcoal is prohibited. Manufactured portable outdoor devices such as barbecues and patio warmers are OK to use. For a full list of what is and isn't permitted view the flyer here.

Wildfire smoke has made air quality unhealthy for sensitive groups. Stay indoors, limit physical activity and keep your indoor air clean as much as possible. King County has more tips on how to keep yourself safe here. The smoke is from wildfires in Eastern Washington. Last night, 911 call centers were inundated with reports of smoke. Please only call 911 if you see a fire or smoke that isn't connected to the Eastern Washington wildfires.
