Statewide burning ban now in effect


A statewide burning ban went into effect Feb. 15 and will remain in place through April 30. The ban, designed to prevent or reduce the incidence of spring wildfires, applies to all open burning, except between 4 p.m. and midnight daily.

No burning before 4 p.m. is permitted, if the fire is in, or within 300 feet of, woodland, brushland or fields containing dry grass or other flammable material. Since forest fuels cure during the winter months, the danger of fire is higher in early spring than in summer, when the forest and grasses are green with new growth. The 4 p.m. burning ban has been effective in the prevention of forest fires, according to state officials. > Read more.
