Pinckneyville, IL (KSDK) -- A burn ban has been issued for the City of Pinckneyville, Illinois, and the surrounding fire district, the Pinckneyville Fire Department said Tuesday.

The Fire Dept says that due to the extreme drought and the fact that all the vegetation is very dry, the burn ban is issued until conditions improve and the threat of a fire getting out of control no longer exists.

Citizens of these areas should refrain from burning anything outside during the current conditions.

Precaution should also be taken when discarding cigarettes or doing any type of work or activity involving fire.
