Wildfire reported in Clarke County
CLARKE COUNTY, Miss. (WTOK) - Clarke County is among those included in a burn ban in Mississippi that covers 40 counties. And there’s good reason.
Current very dry conditions enable sparks to ignite a fire easily and make any burning dangerous.
Clarke County Hot Topics reported a fire Monday afternoon near Brady Brothers Woodyard on County Road 261 that endangered some dwellings.
The Mississippi Forestry Commission says during a burn ban, anything with an open flame that produces an ember is not allowed.
The Forestry Commission map shows just how widespread the fire danger is in the state.
