Wood County Emergency Management Coordinator Randy Selman said county commissioners voted unanimoustly to lift the burn ban this morning, effective immediately.
However, Selman noted even though the ban is lifted, precaution should be taken.
Additionally, he said, be sure to clear the area around the burn area of leaves and debris. There are still a lot of dead trees and other plants due to the drought, he said, and those will increase the fuel load.
"Don't leave the fire unattended. Just use common sense," Selman said.
