No burn day: High rangeland fire danger predicted for afternoon
Due to very high fire danger today, March 9, 2017, all burn permits for Osage County are suspended. A “no burn” day means no outside burning is allowed in the unincorporated areas of Osage County as declared by Osage County Emergency Management. Very high fire danger means that fire control will be difficult and require extended effort.
The rangeland fire danger index will be in the very high category this afternoon.
This county burn ban is in effect until 8 a.m. March 10, 2017, but could be extended depending on weather conditions.
