The Sumter County Commission on Tuesday Dec.14, enacted a resolution placing a burn ban in effect.
This burning ban is for yard waste, bon fires, and campfires on private or county property. The ban does not apply to Division of Forestry permitted land clearing, silviculture, permitted agriculture, and campfires in state forests or outdoor cooking in barbecue grills.
The ban is in effect due to extremely dry weather conditions throughout Central Florida. The current Keetch Byram Drought Index (KBDI) for Sumter County and surrounding areas is at an average of 580.
