The Brown County Sheriffs office will not be issuing burn permits until further notice. We have been notified by the National Weather Service that Wednesday February17th until Monday February 22nd, Brown County is in a Hazardous Weather Outlook due to wind and dry conditions which cause ideal situations for fires to get out of control. Please check with the Brown County Sheriffs office at 785-742-7125, www.brownso.org, local media websites, and NIXEL for updates on burning conditions.
I would like to thank everyone for their cooperation.
