No outdoor burning will be allowed in Clifton Township in Lackawanna County until further notice.

According to the township EMA officer, the ban has been issued because of the warm, dry weather coupled with the rain and the wind last weekend.  The officer said conditions are ideal for fires to easily spread.

The ban will stay in effect until significant rainfall has been registered.
