Just to recap- the statewide burning ban is officially
As of yesterday, citizens can once again apply for burning permits. The
ban was initiated last month due to the dry conditions, as well as an increase
in wildfires statewide. Last week’s rainstorms, as well as the cooler
temperatures, allowed officials to cancel the ban yesterday. Don’t get too
excited, however. The rain did little to alleviate the statewide drought, and
officials warn the ban could be reinstated if conditions do not improve.
