Burn ban ordered in county

Crittenden County Judge-Executive Perry Newcom has issued a an executive order this morning declaring a burn ban for the county until further notice.

The ban has been necessitated by the lack of rainfall over the past two months. The ban will be in force until sufficient moisture has been realized, the judge said.

It is particularly important that hunters camping for deer season understand that this ban includes campfires.
