Open burning advisory issued
Drought has prompted Woodford County fire chiefs to issue an open burning advisory.
A news release July 11 said central and eastern Woodford County are approaching “extremely severe drought.”
“Open burning should be curtailed until such time as our county receives enough precipitation to decrease the drought condition,” the release said.
“Individual fire districts may implement district-wide open burning bans if conditions worsen.”
— The release was issued by the Woodford County Fire Chiefs (Mutual Aid Box Alarm System Division 33.)
