Burn Ban Lifted
(Sebastian County, AR)

Judge David Hudson has lifted the burn ban for Sebastian County. Judge Hudson and the Department of Emergency Management have consulted with fire officials and the Arkansas Forestry Commission to determine the current fire danger and if environmental conditions are still favorable to support rapid fire growth. At this time, the rain that recently occurred in Sebastian County has been enough to lower the County’s fire danger to low.

During a low to moderate fire danger, open burning should only take place in the early morning or late at night when humidity levels are highest. Open burning within City limits should comply with City ordinances regulating burning.

If you decide to burn in the rural areas of the County, please remember all controlled burns must be reported to the Sebastian County Sheriff’s Office beforehand at (479) 783-1051.

For the most up-to-date fire danger and burn ban information, please visit the Arkansas Forestry Commission’s website at as well as the Sebastian County website,
