Regional outdoor burning ban to be lifted Oct. 1, Fayetteville residents urged to follow state safety guidelines

Safe outdoor burning will be permitted as early as Oct. 1, depending on weather conditions.

The state-mandated burning ban for dozens of Georgia counties, including Fayette, extends from May 1 through Sept. 30 annually, and the City of Fayetteville reminds residents that, starting Oct. 1, guidelines set by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Environmental Protection Division should be followed.

Residents wanting to burn outdoors should visit www.gfc.state.ga.us to learn legal and safe burning procedures, and to apply for a free burning permit.
