If forecasted rain does materialize over the next few days, we may possibly lift the current burn ban on Monday, March 29th. According to sources that assign fire danger ratings, our region is still rated as "high" as of Thursday, March 25th. The ground vegetation simply needs more time to absorb moisture and to "green up" if you will. If we find vegetation conditions are more favorable come Monday we will then reopen burn permit process. Thank you for your cooperation."
