Governor signs statewide burn ban effective immediately
Governor Phil Bryant has signed a statewide burn ban for all of Mississippi.
According to Bryant:
The State has been and will continue to be adversely affected by extremely dry conditions, and as a result wildfires are occurring increasingly over wide areas of Mississippi. I have signed a proclamation initiating a statewide burn ban, effective immediately.
This comes after the MFC initiated a request for no outdoor burning on Monday.
