West Virginia's outdoor burning ban will be lifted beginning Saturday.

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin announced Friday that he had approved rescinding the ban, which had been in place since July 6.

Tomblin said in a release that it was safe to burn debris from the June 29 storm that may have collected in yards and communities over the past two weeks.
