MAGNOLIA, Miss. (AP) - Supervisors in Pike and Amite counties have issued burn bans, citing dry weather conditions that are making the area a tinder box.

The Enterprise-Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1NoaRP4 ) Pike County’s burn ban is in effect until Oct. 30 at the recommendation of civil defense director Richard Coghlan.

Coghlan cited low humidity and windy conditions over the past weekend, with no rain in sight.

In Amite County, the ban is in effect through Oct. 26 when supervisors will hold their next meeting and reassess the situation. The board put the ban in effect at the recommendation of county emergency manager Grant McCurley.
