Fire Ban in Effect
Due to the Fine Fuel Moisture Content being Extreme, and the Rate of Spread Index being very high, Vulcan County has moved to a FULL FIRE BAN. There is a very high risk of fire spread during windy and hot conditions in cured (dead and dry) grass fuel types. All fire permits are cancelled, and no new permits will be issued until further notice. This includes Fireworks Permits. This ban excludes those fires which are contained in a cooking or heating appliance fueled by propane or natural gas. If you are using ATV's on grasslands, be extremely careful and ensure you have the proper spark arrestor in place and ensure to look back during travel. Burning during a Fire Ban is illegal, and fines and/or cost of response could apply.Please report all smoke sightings to 911.
