Palo Alto County Implements Burn Ban
–Open burning is being prohibited in Palo Alto County until further notice, just as it has been in Kossuth County.
According to a proclamation issued this week, no open burning will allowed in Palo Alto County until the dry conditions improve.
The burn ban was approved by the State Fire Marshal’s office upon request from each of the fire departments in Palo Alto County.
Earlier this week, Kossuth County Emergency Management Coordinator Dave Penton told KLGA News these burn bans may be in place until there is snow on the ground across the area.
