July 5--  According to local forestry representatives the Georgia Forestry Commission has advised their local office that they have lifted the restrictions on the issuance of burn permits for this area.

Toombs Chairman Buddy West has accordingly lifted the ban on the issuance of burn permits in Toombs County. According to West, “We acted in the best interest of the County in following the professional advice of the Forestry Commission. Since they have determined that the current conditions are safe again we will follow their advice.”

The Forestry Commission banned outdoor fires in June due to the state's drought conditions.
