The City of Oak Ridge remains under a burn ban, and there are fire restrictions in Oliver Springs.
Oak Ridge Fire Chief Travis Solomon issued a burn ban on November 5.
“Due to the dry conditions in our region, no burn permits will be issued until further notice,” the City of Oak Ridge said. “Outdoor burning without a permit is banned by city ordinance.”
Please call ORFD with any further questions at (865) 425-3520.
The Oliver Springs Fire Department said the town is still under fire restrictions.
“No burn permits are being issued for debris burning,” the Oliver Springs Fire Department said. “Campfires and fire pits are allowed as long as they are in approved containment. Charcoal and wood fire grills are also allowed to be used as well.
“Thank you for understanding the restrictions.”
More information will be added as it becomes available.
