Burn ban continues across Osage County, Jan. 9, 2020

With a National Weather Service wind advisory in effect, Osage County Emergency Management has extended a burn ban for the third day due to continuing high fire danger conditions across the Osage County, Kan., area. No outside burning is allowed today, Jan. 9, 2020, and all burn permits are suspended. The ban will be in effect until 8 a.m. Jan. 10, and could be extended at that time depending on weather conditions.

The rangeland fire danger continues due to the forecast windy conditions. Southwest winds at 20-30 mph are expected today with gusts up to 50 mph.

Very high fire danger means fire control will be very difficult and require extended effort.

For more information about the burn ban, contact Osage County Emergency Management at 785-828-3323 or the Osage County Sheriff’s Office at 785-828-3121.
