FALL BURN BAN NOW IN EFFECT UNTIL DECEMBER 15, 2017
Darren Doyle, report:
Chalybeate Fire Chief Daniel Johnson has announced that the fall burn ban is now in effect and will remain until December 15, 2017.
Johnson says that the KY Division of Forestry Division puts the ban into effect twice each year, once in the spring from February 15 thru April 30, as well as in the fall.
Among other regulations, the ban forbids burning of anything outdoors, within 150ft of woodlands or brushlands until AFTER 6pm unless the ground is covered in snow. Other bans may follow as fall proceeds in the event of extremely dry weather. Local government has the authority to announce and enforce such bans in cases of emergency.
