A burn ban was lifted by Elizabethtown Fire Chief Mike Hulsey as of noon Wednesday. However, guidelines for open burning remain in effect, according to information from the Elizabethtown Fire Department.
Garden waste and brush such as branches and limbs can be burned, but lumber, paper, leaves and trash cannot. Also, those wanting to burn allowed items must request a burn permit so the material can be checked by a fire department officer. There is no cost for the permit, according to the fire department.
