Burn Bans In Local Counties
Burn bans are now issued in three of the area counties. the Emergency Services Departments in Livingston, Grundy and Caldwell County declared Burn Bans for their entire counties until further notice.
The burn bans are due to the severe drought conditions that have allowed the grasses to go dormant and become very susceptible to fire.
Residents are advised there is NO OUTDOOR BURNING of any kind allowed in Livingston, Grundy and Caldwell County, with the exception of outdoor grills.
Due to the very dry conditions, even if there is not a burn ban in your area, you should still use EXTREME caution with any outdoor burning and have a water source available if any fires should spread.
