Northumberland County burn ban lifted

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.
