Burn Advisories, Bans Start Popping Up

We all know how hot and dry it’s been recently, and things are getting to the point that burning restrictions are starting to be put in place. Macon County Emergency Management has issued a Outdoor Fire Warning to all Macon County residents, asking residents not to burn until Thursday when better weather conditions arrive. If dry weather conditions continue, the Macon County Commission may issue a burn ban.

In Schuyler County, commissioners didn’t wait, issuing a burn ban on yesterday which is in effect until further notice. Officials say they will issue fines to those who don’t abide by the ban.
