Do we have a statewide ban on outdoor burning? Specific Counties?

MIKE MOSS SAYS:    Gayle,     At this time there are no state-imposed burning bans in effect after a ban covering the southeastern corner of the state was lifted on May 18th. However, much of the state remains in a generally dry pattern (including severe drought across the southern mountains) and caution should be used with any outdoor fires.
