Burn Ban Partially Lifted in Some Areas

Lapeer County Fire Chief’s Association


July 8, 2016

Due to the fact that local conditions and the amount of rainfall received overnight vary across Lapeer County, some departments will be lifting the burn ban currently in place for their jurisdiction.  Because of this, the Lapeer County Fire Chief’s Assn is lifting the countywide ban effective immediately.

Departments who will be lifting local burn bans are:

Attica Twp
Hadley Twp
Otter Lake

The following departments are leaving local burn bans in place until Monday, when conditions will be re-evaluated.

Almont Twp
Arcadia Twp
Burlington Twp
Deerfield Twp
Elba Twp
Goodland Twp
Imlay City Lapeer (Lapeer Twp, Mayfield Twp, southern Oregon Twp)
Metamora Twp

As what types of burning may be allowed in each jurisdiction varies, the public is encouraged to contact their local fire department for definitive information regarding any type of burning in their jurisdiction.
