Burn Bans are still in Effect throughout the Nature Coast

There was a bit of rain this week in some area’s of the Nature Coast. Sometimes this causes citizens to think it is safe to have a campfire or other outdoor fire. It is not safe to have outdoor fires yet.

The burn bans for Citrus, Hernando and Pasco Counties are still in effect, as is most of Florida. There may be severe fines if you burn outdoors, so play it safe and wait.

The wind and the dryness of the area make it too easy to start a wildfire with just a spark.

Burn bans are still in effect throughout the Nature Coast. Please do not start any fires until it is safe to do so once again.
