Hutchinson County has rescinded its burn ban as of Tuesday. Thanks to the significant amount of rainfall Monday night, the county can burn as much as it pleases as long as it is outside city limits.
According to Hutchinson County Fire Marshal Danny Richards, conditions have improved in Hutchinson County. Richards stated that just south of Borger, there was about two inches of rain reported and Highway 152 was shut down for about 45 minutes due to flooding.
Every two weeks, the commissioners review the ban and decide whether to keep it in effect or not, but things are looking good for Hutchinson County for the next few weeks.
