V.I. Fire Services Issues ‘Temporary Burn Ban’ For St. Croix … It Starts Today

CHRISTIANSTED — The Virgin Islands Fire Service issued a “temporary burn ban” for the island of St. Croix which goes into effect today.

The Fire Service, which operates under the aegis of the governor’s office, said that it “will make adjustments to the remaining time on permits that are in effect.”

“However, no new burning permits will be issued until the ban is lifted,” VIFS said.
