UPDATE JULY 18, 2018
Saline County Judge Jeff Arey has lifted the countywide, court ordered burn ban previously issued on July 12, 2018.
While, rainfall and higher humidity has helped improve the potential fire conditions within our area, residents are still urged to take caution with any outdoor burning activity.
As always, Saline County citizens are encouraged to supervise their fire at all times and to notify their local fire department of any controlled burns.
BURN BAN IN EFFECT AS OF THURSDAY, JULY 12, 2018
Saline County Judge Jeff Arey has issued a countywide, court ordered burn ban for Saline County. This order means there is no outdoor burning permitted. The penalties for violating a burn ban could include being fined, in addition to being held liable for any damages to property.
Due to extremely dry conditions with severe fire danger, the ban on open burning is effective immediately and will remain in place until conditions improved as determined by the county in cooperation with local and state fire officials.
Although this ban on open burning does not interfere with outdoor cooking in enclosed grills, Saline County officials urge citizens to use extreme caution when conducting these activities. When the Burn Ban is removed, Saline County will issue a statement.
