Burn ban expired

Wilson County bans burning, certain fireworks


Wilson County commissioners voted at their Dec. 10 meeting to impose a ban on burning in the county, effective immediately.

    They also voted to ban certain aerial fireworks, defined as skyrockets with sticks and rockets with fins.

    County Fire Marshal Edwin Baker noted that the long, dry grass throughout the county has made conditions ripe for fires.

    Baker said agricultural burns will be allowed, with permits, when winds are low.
