Dry Weather Leads to Moratorium on Burning Permits

V.I. Fire Services will not issue any new burning permits in the territory because conditions are too dry, according to a statement issued Wednesday.

“Due to the dry weather, the burning of rubbish at this time would be extremely hazardous," V.I. Fire Services Assistant Director Daryl George said.

“It is appropriate that this ban be put in place as we must take all precautions and work together in being proactive in safeguarding property and life," George said.
