Burn Ban In Effect In Frederick County

Outside  burning of any sort is prohibited due to dry conditions.


Frederick, Md (KM) A total outdoor burn ban is in effect. The Frederick County Fire Marshal’s Office says all outdoor burning, including recreational fires, is prohibited.

The US Forest Service says the fire danger is very high. It says the combination of lower fuel moisture, low relative humidity and gusty winds means a greater chance of fires.

The ban is in effect until further notice.
