RAIN EASES THREAT OF WILDFIRE IN CENTRAL AND SOUTH ALABAMA
September 12, 2000

A ban on outdoor burning that was issued by the Alabama Forestry Commission has been lifted for 17 counties in central and south Alabama, but the rest of the state's 50 counties remain under restrictions for outdoor burning.

Recent rainfall helped ease drought conditions in Barbour, Bullock, Butler, Coffee, Covington, Crenshaw, Dale, Elmore, Geneva, Henry, Houston, Lee, Lowndes, Macon, Montgomery, Pike and Russell counties, all of which formerly were under a no-burn order.

The Alabama Forestry Commission issues burn permits by telephone authorization for agricultural and forest land. Landowners must provide the section, township and range of their property along with the time, date and type of burning before the Forestry Commission will issue a permit.

For more information or to obtain a burn permit, contact your county Forestry Commission office.
