Cobb county authorities say the Georgia Department of Natural Resources has issued a ban on open burning starting May 1. The ban runs until September 30.

They say the ban affects 54 counties, including Cobb.

While the ban is in effect, people may not burn leaves, tree limbs, yard waste, forest land or use air curtain destructors for land clearing, say authorities.
