All of the burn bans in The Natural State have been lifted, according to a Tweet from the Arkansas Forestry Commission.

The Arkansas Forestry Commission said they do not issue burn bans. It can only recommend whether or not burn bans should be put in place. It is up to county judges to decide whether or not they will put a burn ban in place.

The Tweet from The Arkansas Forestry Commission reporting all the burn bans had been lifted came at 8:19 a.m.

They confirmed the last county judge in Arkansas that still had a burn ban in effect lifted the ban as of today.
