Amendment To Governor’s Burn Ban

An amendment to the Governor’s ban on outdoor burning. It will now add an exclusion that would allow certain fires at federal and state recreation areas. A statement by Justice’s office says that the addition was at the request of officials with the state’s Division of Forestry and Division of Natural Resources. The exclusion allows fires within fireplaces or fire rings at designated federal and state recreation areas, provided area managers have authority to continue the open burning ban within designated areas.
