After just more than two months, Lake County is lifting it’s burn ban.
Lake County Emergency Manager Kody Keefer said the decision to lift the ban was made after consulting with local fire officials. Recent rain events have improved the conditions throughout the county.
The county put its burn ban into effect in June.
The county’s open burning ordinance remains in place and is an ongoing ordinance that prohibits open burning when the National Weather Service places a Red Flag Warning for the county or the Grassland Fire Danger Index for the county is very high or extreme.
