There is an Elevated Fire Danger advisory in effect for Marshall County through this afternoon. Winds of 10 to 20 mph with some gusts to 25 mph combined with a rapid drop in humidity values into the 20 to 25 percent range will aid in the drying of fine fuels. Areas that have received little to no rainfall over the past couple of days will see the greatest risk of an elevated fire danger.
Use caution if burning any brush piles today, make sure to follow local laws that may be in place regarding burning in your location. If you must burn, ensure that the fire is constantly monitored and have several ways to quickly extinguish the fire. Contact our local fire department with any questions and if control of the fire is lost.
