WV lifts burn ban

The burn ban across West Virginia has been lifted for two days now. The ban that had been in place since July 6th was officially lifted Saturday after Governor Earl Ray Tomblin gave his approval. The governor says recent rainfall has improved the abnormally dry conditions and it's safe to burn debris from the June 29 storms. We should all be cautious when burning though, by putting debris in several small piles instead of one big one, and having water and tools close by case the fire gets out of control.
