The burn ban on Jefferson County and the city of Pine Bluff has been lifted.

The burn ban on Jefferson County and the city of Pine Bluff has been lifted.

The rainfall received recently was enough to diminish the fire potential, Karen Quarles, coordinator of the Office of Emergency Management, said Friday.

Residents are asked to continue to be cautious when burning because some areas are still sensitive due to various amounts of rainfall.

A ban on burning may be reinstated in the future if necessary, Quarles said.
