White County Judge Michael Lincoln has issued a burn ban due to “lack of substantial rainfall and humidity levels” having created hazardous conditions throughout the county.

The ban went into effect at 7 a.m. Thursday and will be “enforced by and through” the White County Sheriff’s Office, the chief fire official of the various fire districts, the director of the White County Office of Emergency Management and the Forestry Service, according to the judge’s office.
