TOWNER, N.D. – McHenry County Commissioners have approved a burn ban to run through the rest of the month.

The ban cites abnormally dry conditions and high winds.

The ban includes fireworks, recreational burning, garbage/pit burning, burning of farmland and more.

The ban does not include grills or commercially sold firepits, as long as they are on a hard non-organic surface and are at least 15 feet away from dry vegetation when in use.

Violators could face up to 30 days in jail and a $1,500 fine.
