Effective immediately, the Saline County Burn Ban has been LIFTED, according to the Saline County Judge’s Office.
There IS NOT currently a burn ban in Saline County. See below 👇 for the court order. Saline County Judge Jeff Arey issued a BURN BAN for the entire county as of October 3, 2022 but it has been LIFTED as of October 31, 2022.
When the county is under a burn ban, it includes fireworks, campfires, trash burning, open flame grilling, and prescribed/controlled burns. The status of burn bans are monitored daily, with updates provided as conditions improve.
Arkansas Code Annotated 12-75-108 empowers the County Judge to declare a burn ban when local circumstances or conditions present a hazard to the health and safety of the citizens. This declaration is based on Saline County being placed in a High Fire Danger by Arkansas Division of Forestry, a Keetch-Byram Drought Index (KBDI) approaching 700, and Excessive Heat Warnings issued by the National Weather Service.
