09/20/2019 - Sequatchie County has been placed under a "burn ban" effective 09/20/2019. No date has been placed for when this ban will be lifted. ALL COAL AND OIL FIRED ENGINES are not permitted to run while the "burn ban" is in effect. Propane fired engines can still run. This also means no burning in the pits at Cumberland, Saddleback, and Eagle Point. Signs will be posted at the depot and the roundhouse. This can pose an issue going into our busy Fall Meet. Please check back to see if this "burn ban" has been lifted.
