Outdoor burning will be suspended inside the City of Magee Tuesday and Wednesday.

The NWS has posted a wildfire danger alert for our area. Low humidity values & increased winds are expected today & Wednesday. Due to these weather conditions, a potentially dangerous situation now exists – to the public & to our firefighters.

Therefore, in an attempt to prevent or lessen chances of a potentially dangerous situation from developing, the privileges of outdoor burning are now suspended with in the City of Magee (this suspension does not include the unincorporated areas of Simpson County). All outdoor burning is prohibited including open pit fires, camp fires, or fires in containers. This does not include legitimate barbecue grills & smokers. The suspension of all outdoor burning will remain in effect through Wednesday. This suspension is expected to be lifted, allowing outdoor burning to resume, Thursday when the NWS forecast is for better weather conditions, & removes the alert.
