UPDATE SEPTEMBER 27, 2019
Saline County Judge Jeff Arey has issued a countywide, court ordered burn ban for Saline County on September 27, 2019.
Due to extremely dry conditions with severe fire danger, the ban on open burning is effective immediately and will remain in place until conditions improve 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.
