Effective immediately a Fire Ban is now in place which affects the entire county due to the current and forecasted conditions. The Fire Ban is in effect until further notice. This requires that ALL outdoor fires presently burning, be extinguished and the lighting of ANY outdoor fires is banned. The only exceptions currently are internal household fireplaces; barbeques; and AER flaring. All current fire permits and fireworks permits are hereby cancelled, and no new fire or fireworks permits will be issued until the Fire Ban has been lifted.
