A 28-year-old man who works at the Cavendish Farms french fry plant in Jamestown was airlifted to the Minneapolis St. Paul burn unit on Thursday evening following a workplace accident, WDAY reported Friday.
A quorum of Stutsman County Commissioners rescinded the burning ban that they placed on May 20.
The three commissioners present, Craig Neyes, Denny Ova and Doug Kaiser, voted during a special meeting Friday afternoon to allow open burning until their regular meeting June 17, unless conditions warrant a change.
“Since the burn ban went in effect there have been eight fires,” said Jerry Bergquist, Stutsman County emergency manager. “Three out of the eight were controlled burns set during the burn ban.”
Some counties lifted burn bans in time for Memorial Day cookouts.
Ward County Commissioner Carroll Erickson said there was enough rain over the weekend in the county to lift the ban, which means charcoal grills can be used legally.
A temporary ban on burning went into effect at 2 p.m. Friday for Stutsman County, said Jerry Bergquist, Stutsman County emergency manager. The burn ban covers all of Stutsman County, including incorporated cities, with the exception of Jamestown.
