Fayette County is under a second outdoor burn ban in less than a week, this one in effect until 8 a.m. Wednesday.
The Lexington fire marshal issued the order Monday because of dry and windy conditions, according to a news release from the Lexington Fire Department.
The ban applies to all residents and businesses in Fayette County and includes all outdoor fires, including those for burning refuse and construction debris, as well as cooking.
Open burn permits are suspended during the ban.
