Lyon County Open Burning Ban To Expire On Friday

Date posted - October 31, 2012

Rock Rapids, Iowa — From Lyon County Emergency Management Director, Wayne Jepsen:

The Open Burning Ban for Lyon County will be lifted this Friday November 2nd at noon.

The bans stay in effect until all the fire departments with some or all of their district in that particular county advise the State Fire Marshal’s Office that hazardous burning conditions no longer exist, or they let the county representative know, and the representative alerts the Fire Marshal’s Office. The representative is usually one of the fire chiefs or the County Emergency Management Director.

Fire officials advise that even if burning is now legal where you live, we are still in an extreme drought situation, so they advise extra caution when burning.

Since Saturday, Lyon County has been the only county in the state with an Open Burning Ban.
