According to Sedalia Fire Chief Matt Irwin, due to dry conditions and excessive wind forecasted, the City of Sedalia is in a burn ban until further notice.

No open burning, including recreational burn pits, will be allowed within the city limits of Sedalia until further notice, Irwin said Tuesday afternoon.

The use of barbeque grills is still authorized as long as the grill has a lid to cover the fire while cooking.

Please use extreme caution when using a grill, he said.
