A Moderate designation means some wildfires may be expected. Expect moderate flame length and rate of spread. Control is usually not difficult and light to moderate mop-up can be expected. Although controlled burning can be done without creating a hazard, routine caution should be taken.

If you would like more clarification regarding burning restrictions you should contact the Benton Clean Air Agency at 509-783-1304.
