FLIPPIN, Ark. – Officials in Flippin are issuing a burn ban for the area.
During this ban, all open burning is prohibited.
According to the Chief of the Flippin Fire Department, due to several weeks of little to no rainfall, high winds, and low humidity, a Burn Ban needs to begin immediately. Reports indicate the local fire crew has been called to several grass fires in the past few days.
The burn order will remain in effect until it is lifted by local officials.
