Eastside Fire & Rescue, which serves the City of North Bend and surrounding unincorporated King County areas, is reminding residents that its annual burning moratorium goes into effect on Tuesday, June 15th and runs through September 30th. This authorized seasonal burning moratorium is a precautionary measure to reduce fire danger and is timely as the region has experienced unseasonably warm, dry weather this spring.
Communities served by Eastside Fire & Rescue (EF&R) are situated in beautiful locations, offering some of the best living on the west coast. Neighborhoods within the EF&R service area cover relatively mountainous terrain, urban in nature, with fences and yards, and many built in the wooded hills and grasslands that surround Eastside cities and towns. Homes in areas surrounded by vegetation are very popular - and it's these neighborhoods that create what EF&R terms as the Wildland Urban Interface.
