Burn ban is now in effect

Wednesday, July 20, 2011

A ban on all burning is now in effect for the Monett area.

Monett Fire Chief Tom Jones said fire chiefs for the Monett Rural, Pierce City, Pierce City Rural, Freistatt and Purdy fire departments have joined with the City of Monett in asking for a ban on burning.

The ban will remain in effect until there is significant rainfall, Jones said. The danger of fire spreading out of control due to tinder conditions on the ground is too great at the present time to warrant any kind of burning.
