The unseasonably warm temperatures and lack of precipitation have caused the risk for fires to spread very fast. The Emergency Management office and all Fire Departments within Morgan County are asking everyone to refrain from burning anything at this time. Controlled burns can become uncontrolled very quickly due to the current conditions.
Morgan County Fire Departments have responded to more than 7 seven fires within the last 24 hours and two grass fires have resulted in damage to structures.
