Suncoast: Manatee County issues a burn ban due to weather conditions
County Commissioners declared a temporary burn ban today due to “hot, dry, parched, drought and windy conditions.”
Under the seven-day temporary burn ban, you can still use outdoor cookers or grills as long as they are attended by a responsible adult at all times the unit is burning, cooking or otherwise in use.
The following is temporarily prohibited under the burn ban: Fireworks, sparklers, flares, campfires and open burning.
The burn ban will be renewed weekly until the area receives enough rainfall to decrease the threat of brush fires.
