Potter County has been under a burn ban since January 27th and the ban is scheduled to last for 90 days.

The danger of fire is heightened with the high winds forecast for Tuesday.  Firefighters are at the ready for any scenario.

The ban does not include the burning of domestic waster of fires for home heating but does require those activities to be in a metal container with a metal screen capable of keeping flames from escaping outside the container.

To report violations of the burn ban call the Amarillo Volunteer Fire Department at 806-383-3373.
