Sedgwick County remains under a burn ban until further notice.
The region is in an extremely dry and dangerous situation, Sedgwick County Fire Marshal Tim Millspaugh said in a prepared statement, and extra precautions must be taken.
No open burning of brush, grass or trash in barrels is allowed, Millspaugh said. Residents are being asked to take precautions against wildfires and be careful when welding or cutting metal.
A grass fire Sunday evening burned numerous acres in Sedgwick and Butler counties.
