Some parts of Iowa are having problems with fires because of how dry the autumn was this year. Washington Fire Chief Tom Wide says there have not been problems with fires this year. He says autumn is always pretty dry, but with the burn ban this year, there weren’t more fires than usual. He says the people of Washington County were good about not burning during the burn ban this year, and always have been in the past.
