Officials in two northern Arkansas counties have issued burn bans until further notice.

The hot, dry weather in Newton and Searcy counties has caused county judges to ban all open burning in their counties. Officials say open burning under current conditions could be a danger to people, buildings, grassland and wooded areas.

The burn ban continues till cooler, wetter weather arrives.
