LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Only 12 Arkansas counties remain in the red, at least on the map.
After of summer of intense drought and wildfires, the majority of the Natural State is now green, which means it's safe to burn, according to the Arkansas Forestry Commission.
Last week's rainfall from Isaac brought 3.25 inches to central Arkansas. And while most counties are free to burn, a few others including Prairie, Logan and St. Francis remain in the red.
"We always advise them to keep a garden hose handy. Try not to burn when the winds blowing," said Burkie Hollenberger is the Assistant Chief for the Arch Street Fire Department.
One thing people may not know, according to Hollenberger, only natural products are allowed to be burned.
"Trees, leaves, limbs, grass and pine needles. People think they can go burn their trash and if they want to tear down a storage building or something, they can do that. They can't. Any wood that's been processed by man cannot be burned," Hollenberger said.
The burn ban in Pulaski County took effect June 18th and it lasted until August 30th. In that time the Arch Street Fire Department responded to seven wildfires in their district and assisted with 33 other wildfires in surrounding districts.
"They had several fires that burned 300 to 500 acres of land, but we mainly went and helped everybody else that needed it," Hollenberger added.
One Little Rock resident told THV that the recent rainfall was a blessing.
