County issues burn ban | Environment
(WMC-TV) – Thanks to high temperatures and a lack of rainfall, Crittenden County officials have declared a burn ban in the county.
To prevent starting a brush fire, refrain from using wood stoves or fireplaces, avoid using fire pits, refrain from using fireworks, and do not flick cigarette butts out onto the ground.
Hundreds of acres of forestland have already burned over the past week across Arkansas.
