Communities issue open burn ban

Posted: Updated:

Update: The cities of Brentwood, Spring Hill and Smyrna have also issued open burn bans in response to persistent dry conditions.

Mandatory burn bans have been put into place in La Vergne, Murfreesboro and in unincorporated areas of Rutherford County, effective immediately.

Fire officials say the dry conditions in the area are not conducive for safe burning.

Rutherford County is not expected to receive a substantial amount of rain over the next 10 days.

Officials said they will let the public know as soon as conditions improve.
