Some parts of the area received some much needed rain this afternoon, and some didn't. Despite this much needed rain, fire department officials want to remind the public that the Burn Ban remains in effect until further notice. 

Officials said it would take much more rain that this to lift the ban. In fact, closer to an inch is needed, and many parts of the county, including areas north and west of Lake Sara, saw little to no precipitation.

So, for the foreseeable future, the ban remains in effect for the region.
