Title: Red River Gorge - Oct 2022
Post by: neuronship on October 05, 2022, 12:47:57 PM
Is there a current burn ban in effect? I tried Daniel Boone site and news sites but just cannot find the alerts for it if it is in effect. Thank you for all your help! :)

There is not currently a burn ban in any of the Gorge counties, but it may be coming soon if we don't get any rain. Apparently there was a small fire on Auxier Ridge a couple days ago but it was dealt with pretty quickly. Kentucky has 15 counties that are currently under a burn ban. Check the list here to see if any more counties are added in the near future:
