Burning Ban Also Expanded

I just found out today that the Governor and the NYSDEC not only extended the burning ban but expanded it to include ALL outdoor fires of any kind. That includes campfires, fire pits and cooking on your gas grill (they are taking no chances of flying sparks) etc. Open burning of debris is the largest single cause of spring wildfires in the state. So please observe this ban in these super dry conditions.
