Burn ban issued in St. Lucie County

ST. LUCIE COUNTY - St. Lucie County has joined other counties around the state that have implemented burn bans.

Due to dry conditions, a county-wide burn ban is effective immediately.

The county said the burn ban applies to all non-permitted, outside burning.

The Florida Forest Service says agricultural burning will be permitted on a case-by-case basis.

“We are urging residents to use extreme caution and report any outside burning or fireworks to 9-1-1,” St. Lucie County Public Safety Director Ron Parrish said in a statement.  

The county said that the last time it issued a county-wide burn ban was in the spring of 2011.
