Biggsville Area and Henry County Issue Burn Ban

You can add the Biggsville Fire Protection District and Henry County Iowa to the list of areas with outdoor burning bans in effect until further notice.
“Ditto” for Des Moines and Lee Counties. Gina Hardin with Des Moines County Emergency Management says that the amount of rain we are supposed to get this week, won’t be enough. Hardin says the burn ban will remain in effect for at least another week and they’ll discuss what to do after the rain we are supposed to get Thursday.


Lee County also remains under a burn ban, with the exception of recreational fires within the city limits of Ft. Madison.
