Marion County issued a burn ban yesterday afternoon.

Marion County Judge Pete Giles notes that even with the recent snowfall there are other factors that present a danger of burning.  Last week, Boone County Judge James Norton issued a burn ban noting that nitrogen in the snow increases the danger of fire rather than alleviates it.

Currently, Baxter, Boone, and Marion counties are the only counties in Arkansas that have burn bans in effect.  To view the state's website about burn bans in effect, go here.
