Logan County Judge Executive Logan Chick issued a burn ban on Thursday, which was effective at noon.
In the executive order, Chick said, “due to current and predicted weather conditions and the extreme danger of forest fires in Logan County” all outdoor burning is prohibited.
This will remain in effect until Chick’s proclamation has been rescinded by public notice.
“I urge all Logan County citizens to comply with this executive order so was can preserve Logan County’s timber resources,” Chick said. “But more importantly, that we might preserve the most valuable resource Logan County has, the lives and well being of its priceless citizenry.”
