Hernando lifts burn ban as drought conditions ease

BROOKSVILLE - The Hernando County Commission has voted to lift the ban on burning of residential yard waste that has been in place since February. Hernando Fire Rescue Chief Mike Nickerson said that the recent heavy rains have helped alleviate the extreme drought conditions that had the county's drought index above 600. That index is now down to 55, Nickerson said.
