Burn ban lifted in Harrison County
The burn ban for Harrison County has officially been lifted as of Monday.
The ban was issued due to the aftermath of Hurricane Zeta that left behind wide spread outages and piles of debris throughout the county.
Fire Chief Pat Sullivan says the hazards from the storm and weather conditions made the ban necessary. He also reminds everyone to be careful even though the ban has lifted. “In the county, we’re asking that you be very safe, very cautious. Have all the tools you need to control the fire. Make sure the piles you burn are very small and cannot get out of control. We also ask you to remember that you are responsible for your burning. We want you to be safe. Any fire that gets out of control and causes damage to anyone’s property, you may be responsible for that damage.”
Sullivan reminds everyone that every city has their own ordinance to follow when it comes to burning.
