Burning Ban Extends To National Seashore

If you're headed to the Outer Banks this weekend leave the camp fires at home.

The Cape Hatteras National Seashore says it will enforce North Carolina's statewide ban on all open burning. The park service says all beach fires are temporarily banned, but fires contained inside grills are still permitted.

The ban on open burning is necessary because of the dry weather conditions and an increase in fire activity statewide.

The park service says seashore visitors are asked to dispose of used smoking materials properly and away from any combustible materials. Caution should be exercised while cooking outdoors and lit materials should be confined to grill apparatus.
