Conway, South Carolina – After conferring with the Department of Forestry, and due to the recent precipitation, Horry County Government has lifted an outdoor burning ban effective immediately for the unincorporated areas of Horry County. We remind our citizens that where the burn ban is not in place, we ask their consideration and due diligence when actively involved in open burning. Please consider burning after 4:00 PM, and consider not burning on extremely windy days.
Horry County Fire Rescue will continue to monitor conditions and may re-impose the ban at a later date if conditions deteriorate. Horry County Government has a policy allowing it to institute an outdoor burning ban whenever there's a statewide red flag alert or if weather conditions appear conducive to wildfires.
