Due to dry conditions, the Meridian Fire Department is asking the public to discontinue burning.
Fire marshal, Gower Webb, said the department will not be issuing any burn permits until the weather improves.
The burn permits that have already been issued are still valid but should not be exercised. Webb said any reports of burning of any kind during the ban will result in the fire being extinguished by the fire department.
