County-wide burn ban in effect
A county-wide burn ban will take effect Thursday, June 26, which includes Mountain Home and surrounding communities.
In a resolution signed Monday, the board of county commissioners imposed the measure, which prohibits all open burning, including the burning of yard debris and fields, fire officials said.
The restriction also bans the use of burn barrels, campfires, warming fires and the discharge of tracer rounds from various weapons.
