GENERIC: burn ban

Spaulding and Thomas townships issued a burn ban due to lack for rain in the area.

Thomas Township lifted their burn ban on Monday, Aug. 16.

The Spaulding Township Fire Department said its township's advisory is in effect immediately and will continue until further notice.

Current burn permits are suspended, and no new permits can be issued until the ban is lifted.

The fire department said campfires are allowed as long as they can be contained in a fire ring.

Restrictions on open burning can vary from county to county. 

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources said there are burn restrictions in some Mid-Michigan counties. 

Check the DNR's website for more information on restrictions and guidelines.
