A rare total burn ban for all of August and September and most of October will be lifted Friday for Lincoln County.

Recent rain and precipitation in the forecast, which will further reduce the risk of fire, prompted suspension of the ban, the Lincoln County Fire Defense Board said Thursday in a news release.

The summer’s unusually dry and warm weather resulted in record-low fuel moisture levels and increased fire danger throughout the region, the release said.

The LCFDB thanked the public for its cooperation: “Their diligence, along with the quick response of all of our Lincoln County firefighters helped keep wildfires to a minimum.”
