OLD SAYBROOK, Conn. (WFSB) -

Old Saybrook firefighters said they've banned open burning Wednesday. 

Open burning usually requires a fire permit, but officials said they are not allowing it at all.

The ban is temporary and firefighters said they would notify residents when the practice can resume.

The risk of fire is now listed as high due to lack of rain.
