EAST PEORIA – With dry conditions persisting and sustained wind speeds over 10 mph, the East Peoria Fire Department has banned open burning for today, May 2.

There will be other chances for residents to burn dry brush and yard waste because the fire department has extended the spring burning season to May 15 due to the unfavorable burning conditions in the first half of April.
