The Boyle County Judge Executive Harold McKinney and the office Boyle County Emergency Management have issued a burn ban.

No permits will be issued and no one is allowed to burn anything outside. Violators could be fined more than $250.

The Boyle County Fire Department issued an outside burn ban Thursday afternoon, because of the low humidity and high winds, said Chief Donnie Sexton.
