Even With Rain Burn Ban in Effect

Posted on 08 April 2011 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—A Burn Ban remains in effect in Boone, Greene and Story Counties. Many had hoped the rain Thursday might alleviate the situation, but it wasn’t apparently enough rain. The official rainfall for Boone was .37, which was not apparently enough to trigger a decision to lift the ban on open burning. The ban was put in place because of the dry conditions and the large amount of fuel available. The Fire Marshall institutes a Burn Ban after consulting with local fire departments. Story County went into effect Monday. Boone County on Tuesday. Greene County on Wednesday.
