Lead Enacts Citywide Burn Ban

The city of Lead has joined several other western South Dakota locales in enacting a burn ban in the face of the summer's deepening drought.

Citing a fear of fire, Lead city commissioners have unanimously approved a citywide burn ban, the Black Hills Pioneer reports.

The ban applies to fireworks and all outside burning but does not include elevated and covered barbecue grills using gas or charcoal fuel.
