Burn ban still in effect for Washington Township

WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- A burn ban remains in effect in Washington Township, Pa.

Township Manager Mike Christopher said Monday that most people seem to be complying with the ban. He said he spoke to Blue Ridge (Pa.) Fire Chief Jim Meek about burning conditions, and Meek said the ban continues to be necessary due to the lack of rain.

The ban applies to all outside burning, other than gas or charcoal grills, Christopher said.
