Commissioners will reconsider extension of county burn ban

Lebanon — A county-wide ban on most outside fires will be reviewed by the Boone County Commissioners at their 9 a.m. Monday meeting.

The ban was imposed on June 27, after the Boone County Fire Chief’s Association recommended the action because of what were then moderate drought conditions. Since then, Boone County has received less than an inch of rain, and again this week was considered to be in “extreme drought” by the National Weather Service.

As of Friday, burn bans remained in effect in Boone and 63 other counties; bans had been lifted in 25 counties, most of them in northern and northeastern Indiana, according to the state Department of Homeland Security.
