(COUNCIL BLUFFS) The open burning ban in Pottawattamie County will be lifted at 6:00 p.m. tonight.
Forecasted temperatures and precipitation chances have prompted Fire Chiefs throughout the county to lift the open burning ban that was issued on February 1st. Fire officials want to remind citizens to always have safety measures in place when burning, even when environmental conditions appear safe.
The lifting of the open burning ban does not apply within the corporate city limits of Council Bluffs and other communities within Pottawattamie County where city ordinances restrict open burning year-round. Please check with your local City Hall for more information regarding open burning within city limits.
