    Burn bans lifted in state, county

    Gov. Haley Barbour lifted a statewide burn ban Wednesday after heavy rains soaked much of the state.

    Following suit, Lafayette County has also lifted its burn ban as of this morning, according to Lafayette County Fire Coordinator Jerry Johnson.

    Johnson was granted permission by the Lafayette County Board of Supervisors last month to lift the ban when he and the Mississippi Forestry Commission felt it was safe to do so.

    Johnson said he spoke with the Forestry Commission this morning and they were agreement to lift the ban this morning in the county. (November 4, 2010, Page 2)
