BONO, Ark. (KAIT) - Fire departments around the area are ensuring they are ready to go, as many farmers have started burning their fields.

John White with the Bono Fire Department said most people are smart about it, but you always get a couple out of hand.

He said, fortunately, they have the tools and resources they need just in case something goes wrong during a field burning.

“We got two brush trucks, we have a side-by-side that has a bump on it with some water, and we use it a lot to go out in the fields. We don’t want to take the trucks and get them stuck,” White said.

White said they are always busier during the fall, and his staff recently finished training exercises to ensure they are ready to go in case of emergency.
