burning band 2016MCLEAN COUNTY, Ky. (9/19/19) — McLean County Judge-Executive Ed West today issued an executive order prohibiting open burning.

Due to current and predicted dry conditions, elevated winds and low humidity, an increased fire hazard exists, West said.

"It is ordered that all outdoor burning is prohibited until such time as conditions exist that in the opinion of the Judge/Executive, warrant that this order be rescinded," the order stated.

The only exception to the ban is fires lit in a grill for the purpose of food preparation.
