Wichita lifts burn ban

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Wichita has lifted a burn ban that's been in effect since April.

The city said in a news release Tuesday that residents can conduct outdoor burning within the city limits according to local and state laws. Residents can also use outdoor fire places, cooking grills and similar items.

Open burning in certain areas of the state, including Wichita, was restricted during April to address air pollution in the region.

The city said ozone is the top air pollutant for Wichita.
