At Tuesday’s Walton County Board of County Commissioners meeting the board voted unanimously to enact a burn ban for all of Walton County.

The ban went into effect on Wednesday and will last until weather conditions change and “appreciable rainfall” occurs in Walton County.

This ban includes beach bonfires and any other “open flame.”

The only exceptions are authorized burns by Florida Forestry Service or for the cooking of food exclusively in a gas or charcoal grill.If you had a previously scheduled beach bonfire permit, The South Walton Fire District is asking that you contact their office to discuss your options.

According to the Walton Sun, Okaloosa and Santa Rosa counties haven’t gone the same route yet, but are considering the option as conditions become more dry.
