The No-Burn Order originally issued on 9/24/2019 has been Lifted. However, the Kentucky Fall Hazard Season has started. This occurs yearly between Oct. 1 – Dec. 15 as well as Feb. 15 – Apr. 30. During these time periods, burning within 150 feet of any woodland or brush land area is allowed only in the evening hours between 6 PM and 6 AM. Also, the Franklin County Fire Department requests that you notify them prior to any burning during this season to help avoid any unnecessary responses.
