Eastern KY Burn Bans

During the fall forest fire season, which lasts until December 15th, outdoor burning is banned between the hours of 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. if the fire is within 150 feet of any woodland, brush or fields containing dry grass or other materials that could catch on fire.At least 6 counties in our region have issued burn bans, which mean no burning at all, no matter what time of the day it is. They are Johnson, Lawrence, Magoffin, Pulaski, Rowan and Whitley. County burn bans are issued by the judge-executive and are enforced by local law enforcement. Those who violate a ban can be charged with a misdemeanor.
