Lauderdale Burn Ban Suspended

Due to significant rain over the past few days, the Lauderdale County board of supervisors has let a burn ban expire.

The latest ban was initiated two weeks ago due to extremely dry conditions.

State forestry officials say this area has seen enough rain in the past two weeks to allow the ban to be dropped.

The city of Meridian still has its ban on outdoor burning in effect until further notice.
