Conway, South Carolina (April 29, 2019)-- Effective April 30, Horry County Government has lifted the outdoor burning ban for the unincorporated areas of Horry County. We ask that you continue to follow all Burning Regulations set forth by the South Carolina Forestry Commission. All open burning in Horry County requires you to contact the South Carolina Forestry Commission at 1-800-986-5404, before the burn is started.
We remind our citizens that even in the time when the burn ban is not in place, we ask for their consideration and due diligence when actively involved in open burning. Always remember to lean on the side of safety, and do not burn in windy or dry conditions.

Due to Weather Conditions, Horry County Government has initiated an outdoor burning ban effective immediately for the unincorporated areas of Horry County. This ban will remain in place until further notice. The ban has been placed due to the extreme fire danger as a result of the low relative humidity and windy conditions. Any and all outdoor burning, included permitted burns, are strictly prohibited during the ban, and those involved in any open burning would be in violation of the law.
