Pacific County burn ban lifted

The temporary burn ban is lifted as of today in Pacific County.

Pacific County Fire Marshal Shawn Humphreys announced that normal burning activities can resume today.

On July 15, the county implemented the ban, joining other regional counties to place the restrictions on outdoor burning.

With recent rain, officials have begun making changes to the lighter restrictions.

While some burning can occur once again in Pacific County, not all burning is allowed.
