No outdoor burning is allowed in the state through midnight, Oct. 15.
The governor says the reason for the extended ban is the state's long stretch of warm dry weather, which has elevated fire danger across the state.
The burn ban prohibits all outdoor burning, including but not limited to campfires, bonfires, yard debris clean-up, weed abatement, agriculture-related burning and ignition of fireworks.
