Burn ban issued for several counties

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – A burn ban has been issued for Warren, Barren, Logan and Allen Counties.

This means all uncontained fires, such as bonfires and brush burnings are prohibited, but grilling and fire pits are still allowed.

The band comes as a response to the recent dry weather.

Barren County Judge Executive Michael Hale says multiple fires occurred over the weekend due to the dry weather which contributed to the decision to put the ban in place.
