Governor signs statewide burn ban effective immediately

Governor Phil Bryant has signed a statewide burn ban for all of Mississippi.

According to Bryant:

The State has been and will continue to be adversely affected by extremely dry conditions, and as a result wildfires are occurring increasingly over wide areas of Mississippi. I have signed a proclamation initiating a statewide burn ban, effective immediately.

This comes after the MFC initiated a request for no outdoor burning on Monday.
