Rain means end of burning ban in Renville County


OLIVIA - The burning that had been in place since the beginning of the month has been lifted in Renville County.

Sheriff Scott Hable said because the area received "some much-needed rainfall and with the vast majority of harvest complete" the burning conditions in Renville County have improved.

Habble officially lifted the ban Thursday.

Renville County residents will again be allowed to burn by permit, but Hable said caution must be exercised.
