CARROLL COUNTY, Ark. – A burn ban is now in effect for Carroll County.
Judge Sam Barr is urging residents to not to burn any yard waste until local officials lift the ban. This does not include things like Barbecue grills.
He says until there is a heavy rain or the winds let up, the burn ban will continue throughout Carroll County.
Barr says this burn ban follows a week-long red flag warning.
