The burn ban on unregulated outdoor fires in Hendry County has been lifted after a little over a month.

The burn ban was placed on May 14 after nine fires broke out following a lightning storm, igniting wildfires and causing power outages.

Hendry County Board of County Commissioners released a statement on Monday that the burn ban has been lifted.

The county asks residents always to exercise caution when burning outside.
