Osage County issues burn ban through most of April

Lyon County isn't considering a full burn ban yet, but Coffey and Greenwood counties have been issuing burn bans on a daily basis with very high fire dangers this spring -- and now Osage County has enacted a burn ban until April 28 or until further notice.


The Osage County ban includes careless disposal of smoking materials, all cookouts except those in permanent structures, fireplaces or grills and the burning of fence rows, fields, wild lands and trash.

Violations may be prosecuted as Class A misdemeanors. Osage County residents with questions about the burn ban can call the Osage County Sheriff's Office at 785-828-3121.
