List of counties issuing burn bans growing

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Scorching temperatures and dry conditions have forced areas across Mississippi to impose restrictions on burning. 

Some of the counties in central and southern Mississippi with burn bans in place include Hinds, Simpson, Adams, Lincoln, Lawrence, Amite, Pike, Marion, Lamar, Jefferson Davis and Warren. 

The cities of Pearl and Brandon have also issued bans. 

Burn bans are typically requested by the county board of supervisors and approved by the Mississippi Forestry Commission and are subject to change any time.
