Douglas County burn ban lifted Tuesday

TUSCOLA - A burn ban in Douglas County has been lifted, said Emergency Management Agency Director Joe Victor.

He's still asking residents to be careful when they burn, though.

"We're still in a drought condition," Victor said. "However, things are beginning to green up."

He said the county is anticipating more rain, which reduces the risk of a fire getting out of control.

The ban had been for the whole county and started Aug. 2.
