Burn ban issued

As of November 16, 2016, an order banning outdoor burning in Campbell County has been issued, effective until further notice.

Today, November 16, 2016, Campbell County Judge/Executive Steve Pendery issued an emergency declaration prohibiting all outdoor burning in the county until the further notice. He cites a lack of adequate rainfall as a contributing factor in the fire danger.

William R. Turner, director of the Campbell County Office of Emergency Management, explains that the burn ban has been issued following consultation with fire chiefs from across Campbell County.

Under Judge Pendery's executive order, burning is prohibited county-wide until sufficient rainfall occurs. Residents of Campbell County are advised not to burn trash, grass, or crops and to not light campfires or set bonfires. The following exceptions apply to the ban on outdoor burning: fires lit in a grill for the purpose of food preparation; and/or bonfires or ceremonial campfires of no more than five feet by five feet in size. The latter type of fires may be conducted by organized and recognized community, charitable, or religious groups, provided the local fire department is notified. Such fires shall be set in an area at least 50 feet from any adjacent structure or wooded area. The fire shall consist of clean wood only and shall not be used for disposal of solid waste. The fire shall be monitored at all times by members of the group with means on hand to extinguish it, such as a charged garden hose or buckets of water readily available until the fire is completely extinguished.

Failure to comply with the burn ban could lead to fines and/or other civil action, depending on what type of property is damaged during a fire. Questions about this order should be directed to William R. Turner.

 


 

UPDATE: As of 0:00 on November 29, 2016, this burn ban has officially been lifted.
