   OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) -- The Washington state Department of Natural Resources says a statewide burn ban on lands it protects is expiring since rain and lower temperatures have eased wildfire danger.


   State Lands Commissioner Peter Goldmark thanked residents for their help "during a difficult and prolonged fire season."


   The department said the outdoor burning ban was over as of midnight Monday.
