Fire Danger Advisory

Tuesday, September 17, 2019

 

A Fire Danger Advisory for all 67 Alabama counties has been issued by the state’s forestry commission. According to the advisory, current drought conditions and high temperatures have combined to create a high probability of fuel ignition along with an atmosphere favorable for wildfires.

 

Within the last 30 days, the AFC wildland firefighters have battled 192 wildfires that have burned more than 2,200 acres of land across the state. Although the state is not under a burn restriction, the Commission urges everyone to delay outdoor burning until weather conditions improve.
