Burn Ban in Effect for Orange County

in Local Roundup

Due to the continued drought conditions in Orange County, Orange County Judge John Gothia has instituted a Burn Ban effective June 23.

With the July 4th holiday next weekend and a few chances of rain in the forecast next week, Emergency Management will take a look at the drought conditions this week.

The burn ban means all outdoor burning is prohibited except for in a pit or a BBQ pit.

Burn bans don’t automatically mean a ban on the sale of fireworks.
