Brookings County Commission sets Thursday meeting to consider burn ban

The Brookings County Commission will hold a special meeting Thursday morning to consider a county-wide burn ban.

Dry conditions coupled with recent high winds and low humidity have created potentially dangerous conditions throughout the area.

The proposed action would declare a fire danger emergency and prohibit any open burning without a written permit. It would remain in effect until rescinded by the Commission.

The Commission will meet at 9:30 Thursday morning at the government center.
