Burn Ban's Impact On Fourth Of July
Everyday firefighters across North Central Florida work to get a handle on what's been a very active start to the summer.
Dry weather and hot temperatures have created some headaches for crews trying to get several blazes burning in the state under control.
In our area, most of the fires were started by lightning, but Marion County leaders want to make sure that people won't add to the problem, so they've implemented a burn ban.
The ban will prohibit people from using fireworks, including sparklers this Fourth of July.
For more information on what's banned visit Marion County Fire Rescue.
The Ocala Jaycees will host a fireworks display at 9pm on July 4th.
That celebration will be held at West U.S. 27 and County Road 225A/Northwest 80th Avenue.
