Fayette County Burning Ban in effect

Posted: Updated:

A burn ban is in effect in Fayette County until further notice.

According to Fayette County Emergency Management Coordinator, Lisa Roberts, tinder dry conditions are a recipe for disaster.

Roberts say winds in the forecast have fire officials concerned about fires starting and quickly spreading.

Roberts reminds farmers to be careful while harvesting, because machinery can quickly spark in a dry area, and a fire can spread quickly.

As a reminder, no burning is allowed throughout Fayette County at this time.
