Burn Ban Lifted

Posted on 15 April 2011 by KWBG

Boone, Iowa—The ban on open burning in Boone County was lifted Friday afternoon at 4:00. Boone Fire Chief Justin Adams says the situation has improved nicely over the past couple of days, with additional rain and a green up of vegetation. However, he says there is still ample fuel for fires to quickly get out of control if people don’t pay attention. Adams says people need to use common sense when planning any open burning, pay attention to the weather, the wind and the proximity to any structures. And, he says if a controlled burn is planned, notify your fire department about your plans.
