LAKE HELEN -- An outdoor burn ban issued last month for the cities of Lake Helen, Oak Hill and Pierson, as well as unincorporated areas of Volusia County remains in effect through at least February because of dry conditions.

Deputy Fire Chief Kathy Weaver said the ban is necessary because of severe drought conditions and last month's cold snap that killed vegetation throughout the county.
