Walton Co. Fire Hazard

The dry conditions aren’t just causing problems in the Wiregrass. Wednesday, the Walton County commission passed an ordinance banning outdoor burning.

The burn ban will be in effect until further notice.

The ordinance does allow you to use charcoal or gas grills for cooking.

So far, fireworks on the fourth of July are also ok.

However if Walton County doesn't get some rain by the next commission meeting, the board may consider banning all fireworks except for public displays.
