Due to the dry weather combined with high winds, the Sedalia Fire Department will not be issuing any burn permits until further notice,  according to Sedalia Fire Chief Greg Harrell.

“Also with the conditions as they are, we will be issuing citations for calls to open burning. We are asking that people with burn permits not use them until conditions improve, especially high winds,” he said on Friday morning.

“Please remind people that if damages occur from a fire on your property you are responsible for those damages. We are asking that people use common sense,” Chief Harrell concluded.
