A number of area fire districts are having trouble with natural cover fires. Sunrise Beach Fire responded to one Tuesday night that covered approximately eight acres. Mid-County, Gravois, Osage Beach, and Lake Ozark provided assistance. You’re reminded to always check the daily burn notifications especially when it’s dry and windy. Make sure you have a burn permit before you start your fire and have the necessary equipment on hand to control and extinguish it when you’re done.
