After reviewing Alachua County's current wildland fire conditions and the area weather forecast, a mandatory countywide burn ban has been implemented, effective 1 p.m. today, May 31, 2011. The ban will remain in effect until formally terminated by a majority of the Alachua County Board of County Commissioners. The mandatory burn ban affects all of Alachua County, including rural and municipal areas. The countywide mandatory burn ban prohibits all of the following: • All outdoor burning that has not been specifically permitted by the Florida Division of Forestry • The use of any fireworks, sparklers, flares, or other pyrotechnic devices except as provided by law for public displays requiring a permit * Please note that the ban does not affect agricultural burning permitted by the Florida Division of Forestry for land clearing or prescribed burning purposes.
