Reminder: Johnson County Still Under Burn Ban
Johnson County is still under a burn ban. No outdoor burning of any kind is permitted, whether it's trash, a brush pile or campfire. The ban will remain in place until lifted by order of the County Judge.
Violators of the burn ban will be issued citations and if a fire escapes onto another person's property the Arkansas State Forestry Commission will pursue charges
In addition, any fire department that responds to a fire during a burn ban can send the property owner a bill for responding and fighting the fire.
Please use extreme caution and common sense until the ban is lifted.
