ANNAPOLIS, Md. – The state is under an annual open-air burn ban from June 1 to Sept. 1, according to the Maryland State Fire Marshal.

The ban includes 12 counties and citizens are encouraged to dispose of trash through trash pick-ups and composting, according to the fire marshal.

Recreational fires, such as campfires and grilling, are still allowed during this time period, the fire marshal said, but citizens should be cautious.

If open-air burning is necessary, pay attention to the winds and fire, local surroundings and regulations, according to the fire marshal. Citizens should not burn any hazardous trash, such as plastic and oil.

Violators could face charges up to $1,000 or one year in prison, the fire marshal said.

For a complete list of counties, along with more information, call (410) 537-3231.
