DRY CONDITIONS LEAD TO GRASS FIRES, BURN BANS

(Whitewater Valley)--Dry conditions have led to several grass fires in the last 24 hours.  Crews fought grass fires yesterday on Morgan Creek and Pottershop Roads in Wayne County.  On Columbia Road in Fayette County, a grass fire threatened a home before it was put out.  Several counties have now issued burn bans.  Those include Union, Darke, and Henry.  Most of the bans run through at least the weekend.
