WALLA WALLA — High fire danger today prompted Walla Walla County officials to issue a countywide burn ban.
The ban will run through 6 a.m. Friday. The county Emergency Management Department issued an alert saying the “combination dry air and high temperatures support extreme fire danger for Fourth of July.”
The ban is for all agricultural, residential and burning that would normally be allowed without a permit.
The ban does not apply to legally bought and used fireworks
