Due to extremely dry conditions and several months of below normal precipitation, Montgomery County (Iowa) rural areas are critically dry.

In the last several weeks, fire departments in Montgomery County as well as surrounding counties have responded to numerous grass and wildland type fires as a result of the dry conditions.

To that effect, beginning Wednesday, all open burning will be banned within the rural areas of Montgomery County until further notice.

If adequate moisture is received, a revocation of the ban will be considered by all Montgomery County fire officials.
