Effective immediately there's a ban on open burning in Palm Beach County.

All outdoor burning that has not been specifically permitted by the Florida Forest Service is not allowed.

Bonfires, campfires, and burning yard debris are not permitted, according to Palm Beach County Fire Rescue.

You can still use a barbecue grill.

Palm Beach County Fire Rescue is concerned about recent drought conditions, high temperatures, and windy weather.
