A summer burn ban goes into effect Monday, July 1, on all lands protected by the state Department of Natural Resources.
The ban, which runs through Sept. 30, applies to all forestlands under DNR fire protection but not federally owned lands. It includes popular places like Galbraith Mountain.
The only exceptions are recreational fires in fire pits within designated state, county, city or other campgrounds, and DNR-approved prescribed fires. Gas and propane self-contained stoves and grills are allowed.
