The start of October means forest fire season is here in Kentucky. That means that burn bans throughout the day are back. Forestry experts say it only takes about four days for conditions to escalate from the wet weather we have seen to dangerously dry. During the fire season, it’s illegal to burn anything within one hundred feet of the woods or brush area from 6 A.M. to 6 P.M. Kentucky had one of the worst forest fire seasons two years ago. Officials say the most common cause of fires in Kentucky is arson. If a resident starts a forest fire, it could lead to a large fine and even criminal charges.
