HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. – Due to excessive dryness and fire hazard conditions, Christian County, which includes the cities of Hopkinsville and Oak Grove, has ordered a county-wide No Outside Burn Order, this includes fireworks, that will be effective immediately.
A lack of rain in recent weeks has produced dry conditions in area grasslands and woodlands, lawns and shrubbery, which poses an increased risk of wildfires that would be caused by open burning and fireworks.
At this time, the fireworks display currently scheduled at the Fair will proceed as planned unless something changes.
Those who disobey the ban could be fined anywhere from $50-$500. The ban will be removed after sufficient rainfall is received.
Will take place all day Tuesday, May 21 at Gary Mathews KIA, 505 N. Riverside Dr. There will be free food, vendors, specials, and a St. Jude Fundraiser. For more information call 931-552-1111.
