Burn Bans Continue In Many Indiana Counties

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. — Much of the state is still in moderate drought conditions — in spite of all the rain we’ve gotten in the last week. The largest portion of the state under a moderate drought stretches from southern Newton County to the north to northern Monroe County to the south, according to the US drought monitor website. That includes most of central Indiana as well.

With that, some counties still have burn bans in place. Greene County along with Vermillion, Vigo, Sullivan, and Knox Counties along the state line all have burn bans still in place. That means no campfires unless they’re inside a fire ring and no leaf fires or open burning of any kind.
