Burn Ban to be Lifted

The burn ban in Mason County will be lifted on October 1st and outdoor burning will then be allowed. A news release says the Mason County Community Development Director, the Mason County Fire Marshal, and in partnership with the Mason County Fire Chiefs’ Association and Department of Natural Resources, have determined that current weather conditions within Mason County have moderated and have reduced fire dangers. Outdoor burning will resume under the current Burn Regulations set forth by Mason County.
