Westfield Lifts Burn Ban

Following the heals of Hamilton County officials, the City of Westfield has lifted its open burn ban.  Recent rain and ground conditions have made it safer to burn outside.

Firefighters still urge people to be cautious and have the following tips:

  • Never leave fires unattended
  • Never use gasoline
  • Keep campfires at least 25 feet away from anything that can burn
  • Avoid burning on windy days
  • Always have a hose ready to extinguish the fire
