Statewide Burning Ban STILL in effect PDF Print
Monday, 05 November 2007 19:00

A statewide burning ban is still in effect.

With the High Country entering its fall fire season, forest rangers are particularly concerned. Fall leaves, coupled with the drought and water shortage, could seriously complicate a wildfire. Watauga County Fire Marshal’s Office’s Paul Buchanan says the recent rainstorm gave a lot people the idea that the ban had been lifted. That’s simply not the case. A forest fire would not only stretch High Country’s manpower resources, but its water sources as well. Forest rangers do not see the ban lifting anytime soon.
