Emporia's burn ban is now over.

The ban is being lifted as Kansas moves into Phase 2 of the COVID-19 recovery process. City Clerk Kerry Sull says all open burns in the city limits have to be approved by the Emporia Fire Department by calling 343-4230.

The ban was enacted April 2.

Sull says there are still concerns about smoke worsening existing respiratory conditions, including coronavirus.

Information about the city's open burning regulations are online at http://fire.emporia-kansas.gov under the Fire Prevention tab.
