Orange County’s Burn Ban No Longer In Effect

ORANGE COUNTY – The burn ban is currently lifted for unincorporated areas of Orange County and any municipalities that Orange County Fire Rescue services, including Edgewood, Belle Isle, Oakland, and Eatonville.

Burn bans are automatically instituted under Orange County’s Fire Prevention and Protection Ordinance when the Keetch-Byram Drought Index (KBDI) meets or exceeds 500. With the recent rainfall in Orange County, the KBDI average has dropped below 500 for the seventh consecutive day. Per the Orange County Ordinance, this allows the Burn Ban in unincorporated areas to be canceled.

Recreational open burning may now resume, and all are encouraged to be safe by always having an ability to extinguish any fire that they ignite.
