In recent months, statewide burning bans have varied due to drought and hazardous forest fire conditions.

Effective at noon Wednesday, the Countywide Burning ban that was ordered on February 13 was lifted.

Outdoor burning, as authorized by the Durham County Fire Prevention and Protection Code Section 15, may be resumed.

For more about the termination of this burning ban, contact the Durham County Office of the Fire Marshal at 919-560-0660.
