The Meridian Fire Department is asking the public to discontinue burning, due to high winds and dry conditions.
The department will also stop issuing burn permits until conditions improve.
Burn permits that have already been issued are still valid at this time but officials ask all permit holders to wait until the ban is lifted to use them.
Any reports of burning of any kind during this time will result in the fire being extinguished by fire department personnel.
