No burn day: High winds, dry conditions cause fire danger

RED-FLAGDue to high fire danger today, Wednesday, March 22, 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. High fire danger means that fire control will be difficult and require extended effort.

The National Weather Service at Topeka has forecast that today will be mostly cloudy, with a high near 56 and southeast winds at 10 to 15 mph.

This burn ban is in effect until 8 a.m. March 23, 2017, but could be extended depending on weather conditions.
