Delaware County Recommends Holding Off on Open Burning

Dry and windy weather conditions are leading to an increased risk of fires, with burning bans in effect for eleven Iowa counties, including Buchanan and Fayette. And while Delaware County is NOT under a burn ban, Manchester Fire Chief Mike Ryan, who also serves as the Delaware County Emergency Management coordinator, recommends putting open burning on hold at this time.

Ryan says Delaware County’s fire departments have not seen an increase in fire responses lately. He thanks county residents for being responsible.
