Clinton Fire Chief, Mark Manuel, has placed the City of Clinton under a "Burn Ban" effective immediately. Low humidity and fuel moisture has created extreme fire conditions for our area. This allows for fires to start easily and spread fast.
NO BURN PERMITS will be issued within the city limits of Clinton until further notice. Citizens of Clinton are also asked to use caution when using charcoal grills.
Residents of rural Henry County are also strongly encouraged to refrain from any outdoor burning until conditions improve. An announcement will be made when the burn ban is lifted.
