Dearborn County Commissioners have canceled the countywide burn ban that has beed in effect for several weeks, said Dearborn County Emergency Management Director Bill Black Jr.

Although there are some parts of the county that are still dry some areas have gotten several inches of rain.Indiana code allows for a fire chief to establish a burn ban for their coverage area, said Black.

County residents are urged to refrain from burning, but should call their fire department in their area to be sure there is still not a ban in their area, he said.
