Because of the recent dry conditions and no significant rainfall in the forecast, Kewaunee County Fire Chiefs have placed a temporary ban on open burning in Kewaunee County effective immediately.
The ban includes campfires, burn barrels and fireworks.
Developed campgrounds will be allowed to have attended campfires at their own risk.
The ban means fire departments will not issue burn permits until conditions improve. Burn permits already issued are no longer valid.
The open burn ban will remain in effect until lifted by the fire chiefs.
