By Staff Brunswick Beacon

Forestry officials temporarily lifted the statewide ban on open burning Jan. 2, but Brunswick County Fire Marshal Scott Garner has not rescinded the local ban.

The countywide ban on open burning prohibits open burning within 100 feet of an occupied dwelling.

“Although the area received some rain over the recent past, North Carolina remains in a severe drought, which has created dry, hazardous conditions, which has prompted a red flag warning to be issued by the National Weather Service for most of the state,” Garner stated in a press release.
