Burn Ban List Growing in Region 8

WALNUT RIDGE, AR - As Region 8 continues to bake in the August heatwave, the list of counties and municipalities in the region issuing outdoor burn bans is growing.

Walnut Ridge became the latest county or city in the area to issue a burn ban yesterday, when Fire Chief Alan Haskins did so.

On Friday, Sharp County issued an outdoor ban on burning.  This week, similar bans have been issued in Greene and Randolph counties.
