Fall Forest Fire Season Over

        The fall forest fire hazard season officially ended, but officials with the Kentucky Division of Forestry continue to urge caution.

        While conducting any kind of outdoor burning, the Kentucky Division of Forestry asks you to be cautious.
        Since January 1st, roughly 13-hundred fires have burned around 40-thousand acres across the state. While arson continues to be the leading cause of wildfires in Kentucky, many regions of the state have showed an increase in debris fires.
