GREEN BAY - A burn ban is in place in all of Brown County.
Fire chiefs say fire departments will not issue any burn permits until dry conditions improve. Burn permits already issued are no longer valid.
The ban includes campfires; combustible materials such as fireworks and tiki torches; outdoor debris burning; and disposal of burning materials such as matches, cigarettes, ashes and charcoal into the outdoors.
Charcoal and propane grills may be used in the immediate vicinity of a residence as long as they are placed on a non-combustible surface such as concrete or gravel.
Chiefs warns that the local fire department will put out any banned fires and could possibly charge the property owner.
