A special meeting of the Rankin County Board of Supervisors was called Tuesday at 2 p.m.
The board has ordered a burn ban for all unincorporated areas of the county, effective immediately.
The ban will remain in effect until the Mississippi Forestry Commission advises that the weather conditions that have created these dangerous conditions for brush fires have resolved.
We will update you with more information as details become available.
