Town of Leland Issues Burn Ban

Town Issues Burn Ban

A burn ban has been issued by the Town of Leland effective Friday, June 28 at 5 p.m.

Leland and surrounding areas are experiencing abnormally dry conditions according to the U.S. Drought Monitor for North Carolina, along with a high fire danger index rating according to the North Carolina Forest Service.

All burning within 100 feet of an occupied structure is banned within Town limits. The ban does not apply to any open burning permits issued by the North Carolina Forest Service or permitted firework displays. If you are located outside Town limits, contact your local municipal official for information regarding the burn ban. 

Given these conditions, the Town strongly advises against the use of personal fireworks while the burn ban is in effect, instead residents are encouraged to attend professional firework displays. Learn more about displays and fireworks safety tips.

The burn ban will remain in place until Monday, July 8 at 8 a.m. For questions about the burn ban, please contact the Leland Fire/Rescue Department at (910) 371-2727.
