Open burn ban lifted

Friday, November 18, 2022

LE MARS The open burn ban which has been in effect since Sept. 20 in Plymouth County will be lifted at 8 a.m., Friday, Nov. 18, according to Le Mars Fire-Rescue Chief David Schipper.

The ban followed a request from Schipper, representing each fire department having all or some of their fire district in Plymouth County, citing conditions in Plymouth County were such that open burning constitutes a danger to life or property.

Local fire departments still ask the public to be careful when doing open burning.

If you plan to conduct an open burn, you need to notify the Plymouth County Sheriffs office, 712-546-8191, prior to burning and let them know when you are complete.

Akron Fire-Rescue notes that western Plymouth County is still fairly dry in areas and urges caution when burning.
