Burn ban for county lifted

By Paul Keane

The countywide burn ban enacted earlier this month by the Wayne County Board of Supervisors has been lifted.

Under the recommendation of Volunteer Fire Department Chief Rufus Landrum, supervisors voted to enact the burn ban earlier this month. Dry conditions and strong winds had contributed to a variety of grass and brush fires, including one that ended up destroying a local home.

Recent rains have helped with the dry conditions, and supervisors on Monday lifted the burn ban, according to officials.

Residents are still reminded to exercise caution when burning brush, leaves and other vegetation. Please remain with the fire until it is fully extinguished, and don't burn when hinds are high and strong.

Remember to also keep a water source handy and near the fire in the event the blaze gets out of control.
