Citing the risk of catastrophic wildfires due to the dry conditions, West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice issued a proclamation Friday that bans ALL outdoor burning throughout West Virginia.

The ban, which is necessary because of dry conditions and reduced water supply levels in some communities, will be in effect until conditions improve and the governor rescinds the order, according to a news release from Justice’s office.
