FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: County Burn Ban is rescinded

Effective at 3:00 pm today, the Burn Ban in place for Bradford County is hereby lifted, according to Lt. Raymond Shuford, County Emergency Management Director.

"With the significant rainfall we've received over the last few days, we feel comfortable in removing burning restrictions," said Lt. Shuford. "However it is critical that everyone follow State and County guidelines for outdoor burning."

Areas of Bradford County received nearly 5 inches of rain over the last 72 hours, indirectly related to Tropical Storm Cristobal that moved across the Gulf of Mexico. That, coupled with the afternoon showers and storms expected during the summer months, led to the decision.

The burning must occur between the hours of 9:00 AM until one hour before sunset. The location of the open burn must be set back at least 150 feet from any occupied building other than that of the landowner, and 50 feet from any paved public roadway. The fire must also be at least 25 feet from any wildlands, brush or combustible structure.
