Burn ban until further notice for Montgomery, Page counties

An open burn ban has been issued for both Montgomery County and Page County effective immediately.

The ban prohibits all open and controlled burning in Montgomery and Page counties unless an official burn ban permit has been issued by the proper fire chief.

The open burn ban was approved unanimously by all fire chiefs in both counties. Citizens are reminded to not throw out cigarettes from moving vehicles and to discontinue burning yard waste, piled tree debris, grass/agricultural ground and set-asides or other items during this ban.

Small recreational camp fires are permitted only if they are conducted in a fire place of brick, metal or heavy one-inch wire mesh. Any camp fire not in an outdoor fire place is prohibited.

Violation of a burn ban can subject a person to citation or arrest for reckless use of fire or disobeying a burn ban.
