Burn Ban Issued for Sharp County

ASH FLAT, AR - Another Region 8 county now has an outdoor burn ban in effect.

Just three days after a similar ban was issued in Greene County, Sharp County Judge Larry Brown this morning issued an outdoor burning ban for his county, that "will remain in effect until further notice."

"After checking with Pete Reilly, Sharp County Fire Department Coordinator, the state forestry service and others in various parts of the county, the burn ban was determined to be in the best interest for the people of Sharp County," said Brown.
