Recent rainfall leads Health Department to lift open-burning ban

Carroll County Health Department, in consultation with the Carroll County Fire Chiefs Association, has determined that recent rainfall has reduced hazardous conditions that had existed in the county.

Effective immediately, the Health Department is lifting the open-burning ban that was imposed recently. However, drought conditions remain and the burn ban might have to be reimposed.
