Daniel Boone Forest Campfire Ban Lifted

The forest-wide order banning campfires outside of developed recreation areas in the Daniel Boone National Forest is lifted.

Extreme drought conditions prompted forestry officials to issue the ban in early October.

Officials say visitors to the forest are still urged to use extreme caution with fire, and say there are other outdoor burning regulations that must be followed.

Some county burning bans remain in effect.
