Burn Bans Lifted in Three Region 8 Counties

Updated at 3:52 p.m. on Sept. 6

POCAHONTAS, AR - Good, soaking rains in Region 8 in the past 48 hours have caused officials in at least three Region 8 counties to lift temporary bans on outdoor burning that had been in place for approximately three weeks.

Yesterday, the Sharp County Judge lifted the burn ban in place there, while Randolph County officials lifted a burn ban this morning.  Poinsett County Judge Doyle Hillis lifted the ban in his county this morning as well.

A spokesman with the Craighead County Judge's office said yesterday that the local burn ban for the county was still in place, for the time-being.

At one time, as many as 16 counties in Region 8 were under a burn ban.
