    Madison County A!ertshas an important message to share with you.

    Due to current weather conditions and rising fire fuel ratings, Judge Tony Leago is asking all citizens to please use extreme caution if you choose to light a controlled burn or any outdoor fires. 


    All burning should be done in accordance with applicable state laws regarding burning, along with proper safety considerations. Please consider other alternatives, such as composting. 

    If you must burn, consider the current weather and be aware of any weather warnings that may be in effect, such as high winds or high fire alert. Consider rescheduling your burn if winds are over 5 mph or are gusty. It is best to burn when the humidity is at least 30 percent or higher. Plan your burn site carefully away from structures, combustible materials, or other fire sources. Have a water source nearby and always notify the proper authorities that you intend to burn. 

    Here in Madison County, you should call the Madison County Sheriff’s Office at 936-348-2755 before you burn. Let them know when, where and what you will be burning. Be safe out there!
