CORRECTION: April 12, 2023
The burn ban issued yesterday, April 11, 2023, by the State Fire Marshal is for the City of Robins in Linn County, per the request of the City of Robins Fire Department. The burn ban is NOT for the entire county of Linn as previously stated. The State Fire Marshal’s website has been updated to reflect this information. We apologize for the confusion. Please see the State Fire Marshal’s website for more information.
Linn County is currently under a Red Flag Warning, so individuals should use extreme caution for any outdoor burns. A Red Flag Warning means that critical fire weather conditions are either occurring or will shortly. A combination of strong winds, low relative humidity, and warm temperatures can contribute to extreme fire behavior. Please visit the National Weather Service’s website for more information on the Red Flag Warning.
