SNOW HILL, Md. (AP) — Worcester and Somerset counties have issued outdoor burning bans because of drought conditions and high temperatures.

Fire Marshal Jeff McMahon says the ban in Worcester County will continue indefinitely. The ban applies to all outdoor burning except gas and charcoal grills at campgrounds and campfires limited in size to two feet wide and three feet high. Permitted Ocean City bonfires, volunteer fire company training exercises and public fireworks displays are also allowed.

In Somerset County, all outdoor burning is banned except with gas or charcoal grills.
