PLEASE double check any prescribed fires conducted in the past few days. Don't let your well orchestrated prescribed burn turn into tomorrow's emergency or headline news story! ... See MoreSee Less

There are plenty of planned grassland burns out there today. Don't let today's burn become tomorrow's wildfire! Fires can rekindle especially in the presence of strong winds. Wind gusts by Sunday afternoon will be in the 20-35 mph range out of the south. (Please visit weather.gov/top for more information.)
