Feel free to burn away (responsibly, of course).

After the more-than-expected snowfall over the weekend that put nearly the entire county under an inch or two (or more in some areas) of the white stuff, and a round or two of showers passed through the area, the Vanderburgh County Board of Commissioners announced on Thursday that after consulting with the fire chiefs in the county, the amount of precipitation we received was significant enough to warrant lifting the ban which had been in place since October 28th effective immediately.

Southern Indiana Counties with Burn Bans Currently in Effect

The lifting of the ban leaves only three counties in our area with burn bans still active according to the Indiana Department of Homeland Security's map which keeps track of the bans. As of today (Thursday, November 17th), only Warrick, Dubois, and Crawford Counties report having a burn ban in effect.
