Burn ban remains in effect for Eastern Pinal County

xWinkelman Fire_025.tif

With the fire danger listed at “very high” by local fire departments, Pinal County Supervisor Pete Rios’s office reminds residents of Eastern Pinal County that a burn ban is in effect.

There are “many residents throughout the areas still burning,” the supervisor’s office reported.

The ban is not new to the area. The Dudleyville Fire Department institutes a ban on burning from May 1 through Sept. 30 annually in an effort to prevent wildfires – wildfires like the one that closed Highway 77 near Winkelman on Saturday.
