Wilson County burn ban temporarily lifted

By WCN Staff


Outdoor burning will be allowed in Wilson County during daylight hours with no permit required until further notice.

      “We got a couple of inches pretty much countywide two or three days out of the last five,” County Fire Marshal Edwin Baker told the Wilson County News. “Anytime we get this much rain, we suspend a burn ban.”

      This suspension of the 90-day burn ban that went into effect June 11 is temporary. Baker urges county residents to watch for further notices on burning.
