Burn Ban in Effect for Indian River County

Indian River County is officially under a burn ban due to dry conditions. The announcement was made by fire officials in Indian River County and the Florida Forest Service on Thursday. The ban prohibits all outdoor burning not permitted by the Florida Forest Service. This includes bonfires, campfires, and the burning of yard debris. The move leaves Martin County as the only county on the Treasure Coast without a burn ban. St Lucie County put a burn ban in place last Friday. Now every county from Palm Beach, around Lake Okeechobee, and north through Central Florida is under a burn ban… except for Martin County.

From the Indian River County Website

“Due to the dry conditions within Indian River County, Indian River County officials, in a coordinated effort with Indian River County Fire Rescue and Florida Forest Service, effectuated a county-wide burn ban today, April 27, 2017. The county-wide, mandatory burn ban prohibits all outdoor burning that has not been specifically permitted by the Florida Forest Service. Bon fires, campfires, and the burning of vegetative (yard) debris is prohibited until further notice. All residents are advised to report any outside burning to 9-1-1. This declaration will be revisited every 7 days and renewed as necessary to ensure the safety of our residents.”
