Weeks of dry conditions, winds and hot temperatures have greatly increased fire risk in Lawrence County and surrounding counties.
Firefighters from all over the county have already experienced several fires around the county. Drought like conditions have made for plenty of fuel for these types of fires to not only start easily but spread fast as well. Several wild land fires this year have already threatened homes and structures, luckily firefighters have been able to suppress the fires.
If you are not sure about burn bans or burn permits for your area, contact your local fire department or a representative from your local department.
