The Bryant Fire Depart­ment has once again ex­tended the pe­riod for open burn­ing.

Ear­lier this month, Bryant Fire Chief J.P. Jor­dan an­nounced that he was al­low­ing burn­ing for an ex­tended pe­riod.

To­day, Jor­dan has ex­tended the pe­riod again. Burn­ing in the city will be al­lowed through sun­down June 21.

Ac­cord­ing to the city’s or­di­nance reg­u­lat­ing open burn­ing, burn­ing of yard waste is al­lowed March 1 through May 31 and Oct. 1 through Dec. 31.

The depart­ment de­cided to ex­tend the burn­ing pe­riod to al­low res­i­dents to burn storm de­bris caused by “re­cent high winds as­so­ci­ated with re­cent storms,” ac­cord­ing to Fire Chief J.P. Jor­dan.
