O’Brien County Burning Ban Lifted
Date posted - October 24, 2012
The O’Brien County Sheriff’s Office advises O’Brien County residents that the Open Burning Ban has now been lifted. The burning ban had been in effect since July 27th in O’Brien County.
The criteria for lifting the ban is that each fire department having all or part of their fire district within the county has to notify the State Fire Marshal’s Office and tell them that conditions are no longer dangerous to life or property.
According to the Iowa Fire Marshal’s web site, the other three counties in our primary coverage area — Sioux, Osceola, and Lyon Counties are still under open burning bans at this time. We have been told that discussions between fire officials continue about lifting the ban in some areas still under a burning ban.
Fire officials still advise extreme caution when burning, even if it is now legal in your area.
