Due to current weather conditions, Horry County Government has initiated an outdoor burning ban effective sunrise Tuesday, March 7, for the unincorporated areas of Horry County.

All outdoor burning, including permitted burns, is strictly prohibited during the ban, and those involved in any open burning would be in violation of the law.
