The Macon County Office of Emergency Management has issued an open burn warning for Macon County. This may be later upgraded to a burn ban.
Due to extremely dry weather conditions, coupled with high winds and low humidity values, have made conditions dangerous for fires to get out of control easily.
Please exercise extreme caution when burning, and be aware that a ban may be issued in the near future if conditions continue to deteriorate.
This warning is in effect until Wednesday, September 11 at 9 p.m.
The cities of Macon and La Plata have issued burn bans.
