Spring Forest Fire Season Begins Thursday

Thursday marks the beginning of spring forest fire season in Kentucky. That means no one will be allowed to burn anything outdoors within a hundred and fifty feet of wood or brush land areas during daylight.

The Kentucky Division of Forestry says arson is often the most common cause of forest fires in Kentucky.

To help catch and stop arsonists, you are asked to report any suspicious behavior to the Target Arson Hotline. There number is 1-800-27-ARSON.
