Fannin County Emergency Coordinator Darrell Brewer stated the fire departments are responding to an increase in grassfires, including one that burned 150 acres.
"Even when it is muddy, fire will run across the grass," Mr. Brewer explained.
Commissioner Jerry Magness suggested that a burn ban could be issued and then reviewed on a week-to-week basis.
A significant rainfall event is expected Friday, January 13.
