County Officials Lift Burn Ban

Saline County officials have allowed a burn ban imposed at last Tuesday’s County Commission meeting to expire.

In a press release issued Tuesday, Saline County Emergency Management said they would let the ban expire. They will still have the option to suspend burning when wind speeds are expected to reach a certain level.

Several rural fire districts recommended the ban after several fires broke out throughout the county on March 18th, most of them resulting from permitted burns getting out of control during dry and windy conditions.

Emergency Management said that even though the ban is no longer in effect, county residents should continue to use caution when performing outdoor burns.
