On Wednesday, Clay County Commissioner Charlie Brown told The Brazil Times issuing a burn ban is not on the table at this time.
"Right now, it doesn't seem to be a concern," Brown said. "We'll see how things progress. People are basically being careful."
Clay County Emergency Management Director Bryan Husband said he met with officials earlier this week and it was determined a burn ban would not be issued.
"We have not had any rations of fires," Husband said. "I know we need to be proactive, but we've just had very, very few.
"With the Fourth of July coming, I think (the commissioners) want everybody to have a chance to celebrate."
However, Husband said officials would continue to monitor the situation.
"We'll check it each week," he said. "We'll check to see if there have been any events that could lead to (a burn ban being issued). We'll just see what happens. There have been very few brush fires over the last week or two. But we'll keep an eye on it."
With two neighboring counties issuing burn bans, Brown said officials would address a possible burn ban if needed.
"As of right now, we're monitoring it," Brown said. "If we start to get some fires, then we have to look at it. But right now, it seems like people in the county are making a concentrated effort. We don't want to create a problem. I think we'll be OK."
