The burn ban, called for by Sequoyah County Commissioners on Nov. 21 due to the lack of rain, was lifted by the commissioners on Monday.
The commissioners allowed the ban to expire due to heavy rain which hit most of the county Sunday evening and Monday morning.
Steve Rutherford, Sequoyah County Emergency Management director, said the commissioners will review the situation at their meeting next Monday to determine if dry conditions are continuing and the burn ban should be reinstated.
