Southeast Missouri - Dry conditions throughout southeast Missouri have prompted several cities and counties to issue Burn Bans! If in doubt, don't burn until we see some significant rain!
Cape Girardeau County: Due to the combination of temperature, low humidity, dry ground covering, and the possibility of increasing winds, the Cape Girardeau County Commission issued a "no burn advisory" for Cape Girardeau County. All county residents are advised to postpone open outdoor burning until the fire danger decreases. If you are driving or working outdoors, be extremely careful to discard smoking materials. The grass along the highways is very dry and could easily ignite. Campers and hunters should be extremely careful.
