Sunday, October 9th, 2011

Due to low humidity and dry conditions, and increased incidents of fire across the Johnson County area, a temporary ban on all open burning has been issued for the protection and safety of citizens and the preservation of property.

 

The ban prohibits all outdoor burning, including open fires, outdoor fireplaces, cooking grills, fire pits, bonfires and yard chimineas.
