More than two weeks after issuing a statewide burning ban, Gov. Jim Justice announced Wednesday the proclamation has been lifted.

Justice said in a press release the action comes after sufficient rainfall earlier this week.

Regulations related to the fall burning season are in effect; no fires to any forest land or grass are allowed from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Small fires for food preparation or providing light or warmth are allowed. The fall burning season goes until Dec. 31.
