Burn ban to remain in place
There’s no chance the ban on private fireworks displays will be lifted before the Fourth of July.
That’s according to Tippecanoe Emergency Management Agency director Smokey Anderson.
He says conditions are still too dry, despite the rain in the area over the weekend.
Anderson says public fireworks displays will still be allowed, as long as organizers have the proper permits.
He says the burn ban will remain in place beyond the holiday, because it also prohibits open fires.
