The State Forester has issued a Fire Alert for the whole State of Alabama. Burn permits have been restricted and anyone caught without a burn permit can be subject to prosecution for committing a Class B misdemeanor. It is my recommendation that if we run any open burning calls that we put them out. The link to State Forestry’s web page and the news bulletin is posted below. If you have any questions, please let me know.
