Elevated Fire Danger: Dry Conditions Put Mississippi Counties at Risk

CLEVELAND, Miss.–Winds of at least 20 mph, very dry air and no rain are putting some Mississippi counties at a higher risk for wildfires. The National Weather Service said Thursday that several counties have been put on notice for an elevated fire danger.

Those counties include Bolivar, Sunflower, Washington, Humphreys, Issaquena, Sharkey, Yazoo, Warren, Hinds and Claiborne.

The Weather Service said the elevated threat continues through Thursday and there will still be a limited threat along and west of I-55 Friday.

The main threat will be across the river in Louisiana and Arkansas, but Mississippians should be aware.
