Effective immediately NO outdoor burning allowed in the City Limits of Nevada till we get much needed rain. NWS has our area in a highly affected area for the drought, Hot dry and windy conditions are going to continue.
We have seen a rise in grass and brush fires in Vernon county over the past couple weeks.
I'm sure the area Fire Chiefs would also like to put out No outside burning in their areas as well.
