Collier County has announced that it has lifted the burn ban that was set in place for over a month.

Collier County lifted the ban on Monday morning following a review by the Collier County Bureau of Emergency Services, the Florida Forest Service and the Collier County Fire Chiefs’ Association.

According to the county, the same group identified the need to issue a burning ban on May 14 after a lack of rainfall during March and April. 

Recent rainfall kicked off several flood advisories for the county.
