Horry County Government has lifted an outdoor burning ban previously put in place due to flooding. 

According to a press release, the outdoor burning ban for the unincorporated areas of Horry County has been lifted. 

“All open burning in Horry County requires you to contact the South Carolina Forestry Commission at 1-800-986-5404, before the burn is started,” the release says. “We remind our citizens that where the burn ban is not in place, we ask their consideration and due diligence when actively involved in open burning.”

The burning ban was put in place on September 21 due to road closures and traffic impacts from flooding related to Hurricane Florence.
