The Forest Service issued new restrictions on Monday because of the drought conditions.
This will only impact national forests like Bankhead.
People are now restricted to building campfires in developed recreational areas. Fireworks are also now banned from national forests in Alabama. You are only exempt from these rules if you have a permit.
These rules are effective immediately until November. If you are caught breaking a rule, you can face a fine of up to $5,000 and even jail time.
