City wide open burn ban issued by Elizabethton Fire Dept.
Due to the very dry conditions and lack of substantial precipitation in the forecast, the Elizabethton Fire Department is issuing a ban on open burning until further notice. At this time, this will not include grilling or burn pits. If conditions worsen the ban will be extended to include all fires. Once conditions improve we will issue another press release lifting the ban.
City of Elizabethton
UPDATE: The Burn Ban was lifted at approximately 8:00am December 15, 2016.
