Burn Ban in Effect for Warren County

In conjunction with the burn ban issued by the North Carolina Forest Service, the Warren County Fire Marshal’s Office has issued a burn ban for Warren County effective November 29, 2021 at 5pm. All open burning within 100 feet of a structure and all fires shall be extinguished immediately.

 

Due to dry conditions and increased fire risk, the North Carolina Forest Service has issued a ban on all open burning and has canceled all burning permits statewide until further notice. 

 

Warren County Fire Marshal’s Office has also issued a burn ban for Warren County. This applies to all open burning within 100 feet of a structure.  

 

With both of these burn bans in effect, there shall not be any open burning within Warren County. Open burning includes burning leaves, branches, or other plant material. In all cases, burning trash, lumber, tires, newspapers, plastics, or other nonvegetative material is illegal.

 

To report a wildfire or any open burning within Warren County, call 911. Local fire departments and law enforcement officers are assisting the N.C. Forest Service and Warren County Fire Marshal’s Office in enforcing the burn ban. 

The N.C. Forest Service and the Warren County Fire Marshal’s Office will continue to monitor condition and will update the public when the ban is lifted. Anyone with questions may contact the local N.C. Forest Service County Ranger or the Warren County Fire Marshal at 252-257-1191.
