Hardin County Judge-Executive Harry Berry signed an executive order Monday terminating the burn ban in the county.
Berry said in the order that the Kentucky Division of Forestry has notified him that there no longer is an "extraordinary forest fire hazard or fire occurrence within Hardin County.''
Residents still are encouraged to use extreme caution when engaged in open burning of any type.
The cities of Elizabethtown, Radcliff, and Vine Grove "Burn & Fireworks Ban" continues. The three cities have not received enough rain to lift this red flag warning, according to Radcliff spokesman Bryce Shumate. All three cities continue to have safety in mind for our citizens in this warning. We will determine Friday, if enough rain is received, as to continue or lift this ban.
"The rainfall within the city has been very patchy with some areas receiving negligible amounts,'' said Elizabethtown Fire Chief Mike Hulsey. "Hopefully we will receive some rain this week, with the forecast calling for a chance of showers each day, and the ban can be eased."
