Darren Doyle, story:
Edmonson County Judge/Executive Scott Lindsey has issued an executive order for a burn ban for all of Edmonson County, due to drought conditions. The ban applies to all open outdoor burning with the exception of campfires in an established campground or structured fire pit.
Local firefighters have battled multiple recent field and grass fires, including two today, according to the Judge's Office.
The National Weather Service has placed the region in an "enhanced fire danger," as a result of the combination of a dry atmosphere and low fuel moisture.
The ban will remain in effect until further notice.
