Outdoor Burning Ban In Effect in Ohio

COLUMBUS, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – The month of March signals the beginning of a semi-annual burn ban in unincorporated areas of Ohio.

Even fires in burn barrels are prohibited between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. in March, April and May.

It’s because of dry brush and typically windier conditions this time of year.

There are exceptions though.

Check with your local fire department first.
