Effective Wednesday, October 23, the ban on outdoor fires that was put in place on October 4 in Northumberland County has been lifted.
While outdoor fires now are permitted, please be careful if you are burning anything outside.
- Do not leave an outdoor fire unattended.
- When you think the fire is out, drench it again and again with lots of water. Stir the ashes and drench it again.
- Be careful if you are burning in windy conditions — the winds in our neighborhood can cause a small fire to spread quickly.
- CALL 911 IF YOU THINK YOUR FIRE IS OUT OF CONTROL.
