ABERDEEN, Miss. (WTVA) - Monroe County’s supervisors voted for a burn ban on Monday.

The burn ban would extend to Oct. 11, according to County Fire Coordinator Terry Tucker.

According to the Mississippi Forestry Commission (MFC), burn bans are normally requested by a county’s Board of Supervisors and then approved by the state office.

The MFC keeps a list of active burn bans on its website.

As of this posting, Monroe County has not been added to the active list.

The MFC is exempted from the ban and outdoor grilling is OK.
