WINCHESTER, Ky. (AP) -- Fireworks have been banned in the Daniel Boone National Forest.

The forest announced this week that Acting Forest Supervisor Bill Lorenz issued that prohibition.

The order extends prohibition of fireworks to all national forest lands within the Daniel Boone, including the general forest area. Fireworks were never permitted in developed campgrounds or other recreation areas.

The order prohibits possession, discharging or using any kind of firework or other pyrotechnic device. Lorenz says the reason for the action is to help prevent forest fires and keep the forest safe for visitors.
