Warnings Against Outdoor Burning Are Continued

With none of the expected rain from our weekend weather forecast having fallen, authorities are continuing their advisories against outdoor burning.

More than a dozen brush and grass fires in Venango County between Friday and Sunday resulted in responses by area fire companies.  A brush fire in Lawrence County charred more than 500 acres.

The combination of dry conditions, lower humidity and gusty winds prompted the National Weather Service on Friday to issue a Red Flag Warning, meaning experts were strongly advising against outdoor burning.

Rain is in the Oil Region forecast for Monday through Friday of this week, but many might be tempted to point out that the rain was originally expected to begin on Saturday night.
