Union County issues burn ban

Posted: Updated:

The Union County Commission has issued a burn ban due to extremely dry conditions and lack of rain.

Union County is the 44th South Dakota county to issue a burn ban this summer. Open burning has been banned-- which is defined as any outdoor fire, including but not limited to campfires, warning fires or the prescribed burning of fence rows, fields, wild lands, trash and debris.

The ban will be in place until Union County Emergency personnel determine fire conditions improved.
