The Fayette County Department of Fire and Emergency Services would like to remind all residents and developers that the outdoor burning ban will go into effect beginning Friday, May 1. No outdoor burning will be allowed until the ban is lifted on October 1.

Until May 1, residents in the unincorporated county, Tyrone, Brooks and Woolsey should call the automated burn permit line at 770-305-5468 to obtain a permit to burn. Developers wishing to burn debris from land clearing before May 1, should contact the Department at 770-305-5414.

The outdoor burning ban is enacted to improve air quality, officials have said.
