The Caldwell County Fire Marshal’s Office has lifted the burning ban that was put in place on November 9. The burning ban is lifted as of 5 p.m. today.
Kevin Brown, Caldwell County Fire Marshal still advises caution when burning. “It is extremely important for everyone that burns do so with extreme caution and have water available even though the burning ban is lifted. Windy conditions can send a fire burning out of control quickly.”
This follows the North Carolina Forest Service lifting their November 8 burning ban in Caldwell County also as of 5 p.m. today. (click here for NC Forest Service Memorandum)
The Caldwell County Fire Marshal’s Office had added an addition to the Forest Service ban moving closer to occupied dwellings.
Both burning bans were lifted due to rain fall over the past week in Caldwell County.
