The Board of Johnson County Commissioners has issued a burn ban covering the unincorporated areas of Johnson County.
The news release cites continued excessively dry conditions. The release also states that the ban is effective immediately and will remain in effect indefinitely, until fire conditions improve.
Burn Permits previously issued have been suspended and new Permits will not be issued until after the ban is lifted.
The Board's decision adds to the burn ban which the Northwest Consolidated Fire District put into effect on October 3rd.
