TAYLOR COUNTY, W.Va (WDTV) -- A man has been cited for violating the statewide burn ban, causing a brush fire in Taylor County.

According to the West Virginia Natural Resources Police Facebook page, Marion County Officer Kocsis and Taylor County Officer Clark were working together to investigate the two separate brush fires on Saturday, October 5, 2019.

One brush fire was in the White Hall area of Marion County, and the other was in the Boothsville area of Taylor County.

The cause of the Marion County fire is still under investigation.

The burn ban remains in effect across the state due to abnormally dry and drought-like conditions.
